By the official press release: Siemens Mobility has received an order to build 23 4-car Mireo trainsets for rail operator agilis Eisenbahngesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary of BeNEX GmbH. The trainsets will be delivered for the Regensburg/Danube Valley rail network in 2024 and are scheduled to enter passenger service in December that year. The Bavarian Railways Company (Bayerische Eisenbahngesellschaft or BEG), which plans, finances and controls regional and commuter rail operations on behalf of the state of Bavaria, had called for bids for new trains for parts of its network. The Mireo trains will serve on the new RE Line 50 (Nuremberg – Regensburg – Plattling) and the RB Line 51 (Neumarkt – Regensburg – Plattling).

The new Mireo trainsets have 216 seats and provide improved passenger comfort thanks to their spacious design. Each entrance has a multipurpose area that is not restricted by folding seats, which increases passenger convenience. All trains are barrier-free for passengers with limited mobility. In addition, a lift is available for wheelchair users to ease entries and exits at stations with lower platforms. A large number of luggage racks makes it easier for passengers to stow their luggage.
A real-time passenger information system displays updated arrival and departure times as well as connection options for the respective stations. The trains will also have special high-frequency window panes developed by Siemens Mobility that significantly improve cellphone reception on board. Free WLAN service will also be available throughout the train.
The Mireo from Siemens Mobility is a scalable articulated trainset whose weight has been substantially reduced by various design measures, such as bogies with inside bearings. Significantly improved aerodynamics compared to previous models considerably reduce the train’s energy consumption. The new Mireo variant is particularly powerful, enabling it to accelerate faster. The train has a top speed of 160 km/h.
The Mireo trainsets will be built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Krefeld.
