Bombardier Transportation : Bombardier to Deliver New Commuter Trains to Deutsche Bahn AG for Service in Hamburg

   Bombardier Transportation : Bombardier to Deliver New Commuter Trains to
                   Deutsche Bahn AG for Service in Hamburg

  *Electric Multiple Units with innovative technology, favorable energy
    consumption as well as low maintenance and repair costs for the S-Bahn in
    Hamburg
  *Major order of 327 million euro strengthens market position in the
    commuter market
  *Modern design and new carbody shape provide greater comfort

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - June 28, 2013) - Rail technology leader
Bombardier Transportation has won an order from the S-Bahn GmbH, a subsidiary
of DB Regio AG, to deliver 60 new single and dual-voltage commuter trains. The
Hamburg Parliament has confirmed that from December 2018, the S-Bahn Hamburg
GmbH will serve as the operator of the S-Bahn network in Hamburg for another
15 years. In a European tender procedure, the S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH awarded
Bombardier the contract to supply the vehicles. The order value amounts to
approximately 327 million euro ($427 million US). The contract provides the
option to order up to 86 further trains until the end of 2018.

This order strengthens the market position of Bombardier electric multiple
units in Germany and is the first time that Bombardier has delivered trains to
S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH without a partner. Bombardier is committed to providing
innovative and sustainable transportation solutions that improve urban flow
and help cities across the world to breathe again. Today's passengers expect
convenient and flexible travel options that offer sustainability, easy access,
comfort and reliability. Modern trains produced by Bombardier, including the
new S-Bahn trains, combine comfort, speed and environmental performance and
will encourage more people to switch from road to rail.

The three-car electric multiple units are characterized by their striking and
dynamic exterior design. Each car has three double swivel-sliding doors per
side, generous entry areas and wide aisles which allow rapid passenger flow.
The transparent and passenger friendly interior is designed with convenient
seating and fixed stopping for standing passengers. A multi-purpose area
features two places for wheelchair users, prams, bikes or large pieces of
luggage at each end of the train. Information on connecting trains or changing
operating schedules are displayed in real-time via a comprehensive passenger
information system.

Valuable experience from the previous series has been incorporated in the
development of the new S-Bahn trains. The result is a train with innovative
technology combined with low energy consumption as well as low maintenance and
servicing costs. The carbody's optimized design means that the trains do not
require sliding steps for gap bridging. For the first time the trains for
Hamburg will be equipped with a compact air conditioning system. The heating
system operates with an energy saving heat pump which uses waste heat from the
traction equipment system to heat the passenger compartments.

The single-voltage trains with a maximum speed of 100 km/h are used on the
urban S-Bahn network with 1200 V DC. The dual-voltage trains operate at a
maximum speed of up to 140 km/h on route extensions to the suburban regions at
an alternating current of 15kV 16,7Hz . This allows the creation of direct
routes to the city of Hamburg, without the need to change trains. The first
eight vehicles will be handed over to the S-Bahn Hamburg GmbH by the end of
2016 for a 40-week testing period. Upon successful completion they will be
finally transferred and the delivery of the remaining 52 trains can commence.
The last train will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Design, engineering and final assembly of the trains will take place at the
Bombardier plant in Hennigsdorf, Germany. The bogies are manufactured at the
Bombardier site in Siegen, Germany.
