Germany: The four-car train was presented to the media at the plant in Salzgitter, Germany, where another three vehicles are being assembled.

Currently, the EMU, which is designed to operate at a maximum speed of 160 km/h and will have 408 seats, is undergoing certification tests.

The Local Transport Authority of Lower Saxony (LNVG) says that all 34 Coradia Max are to be finally manufactured by the end of 2025, leading to the delivery being delayed for a year. Previously, Alstom said that one of the reasons why it failed to meet the deadlines were electrical components supply problems due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the situation in Ukraine, and increased waiting time for body components from China.

Alstom received a contract with a total value of €760 mln on supply and 30-year maintenance of the 34 trains in 2021.
