On 6 December 2018 at PCW Siemens unveiled its new Mireo regional train platform. In the coming months, a total of eight pre-production trains will be commissioned at the company’s Test and Validation Center (PCW) in Wegberg-Wildenrath. DB Regio has ordered a total of 24 Mireo EMU, the first order Siemens Mobility received for the newly developed platform.
The three-car trains have 220 seats and a maximum speed of 160 km/h. In June 2020, the Mireos are scheduled to begin service - they will be used for regional services on the Offenburg - Freiburg - Basel/Neuenburg (Switzerland) route during the week and operate in the Kaiserstuhl region from Freiburg to Endingen/Breisach on Sundays.
