India: The three-car Adessia EMU was handed over to India’s National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) at the plant in the city of Savli.

The electric train is designed for the Mass Rapid Transit System. Its first 23.6 km stretch with 13 stations is due to be completed in June 2025.

The $340 mln contract for the supply and 15-year maintenance of ten three-car and 30 six-car vehicles was concluded in May 2020 with Bombardier Transportation, acquired by Alstom in 2021. The six-car Namo Bharat trains were rolled out on the first stretch of the Delhi–Meerut RRTS line last autumn. The rolling stock has been designed in the country and is manufactured at the Savli plant under the Make in India initiative.

The three-car EMU can operate at a maximum speed of 120 km/h and accommodate more than 700 people, with 190 seats.
