India: The German company is investing INR 1.8 bln ($22 mln) to expand their plant in Aurangabad, opened in November 2022 to manufacture bogies.

According to Siemens Mobility, the new facility will be equipped with the latest technologies using locally procured components. The production site, able to adapt to changing customer requirements, will serve to implement turnkey metro projects, including export ones. It is planned to set up the plant in a phased manner by 2028.

Siemens Mobility is actively localising manufacturing under the national programme Make in India. Another plant, dedicated to produce 1,200 electric locomotives, is now being built in Dahod on the base of the former depot. Furthermore, as part of a consortium with RVNL (India), the German manufacturer is delivering power supply systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems for the under-construction metro lines in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Surat.
