Bombardier Transportation has introduced a new battery-operated train:  the BOMBARDIER TALENT 3 train.  The new battery-operated train is the first of its kind to enter passenger operation in Europe in more than 60 years.

It does not generate any exhaust and sets the standards for smart mobility with peak values of 90 percent in the areas of efficiency and recyclability.  It is also around 50% quieter than modern diesel trains.  According to a comparative study by the Technical University of Dresden, the battery-operated train clearly has an edge with respect to the total costs across the service life of 30 years.

The range of the train will increase proportionally with the continuous capacity increases due to new battery developments.  The current prototype is equipped with four BOMBARDIER MITRAC traction batteries ... and can travel routes of around 40 kilometers.  In 2019 the next generation of battery-operated trains will be able to cover distances of up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) on non-electrified railways.
