Siemens Mobility, Germany's Siemens AG's department, has received an order from Munich Transport Company (MVG) and Stadtwerke München (SWM) for 18 additional six-car C2-type underground trains. They are expected to be delivered between 2024 and 2025.

"I am pleased that today we can transfer the first train of the C2.13 series to the depot to begin the approval process. The commissioning of the C2 vehicle series can then continue continuously," District President Konrad Schober said.

These are trains renowned for their environmentally friendly and energy-saving properties. For instance, when braking, C2 trains feed energy back into the power grid, improving the CO2 balance and making public transport more environmentally friendly, which is in line with Europe's environmentally-friendly policies.

The order for an additional 18 trains follows the delivery of the first of 22 C2-type metro trains ordered by SWM and MVG in 2020.

"I'm especially pleased that we are taking a further important step today in modernizing Munich's metro fleet with the first delivery from the third delivery series. We've been operating this train type since 2016, so our order of additional trains from this series relies on a proven concept to replace the ageing A-trains step by step," said Ingo Wortmann, the Chairman of the Management Board of the Munich Transport Company (MVG).

The option forms part of a framework agreement for the supply of 67 trains with a total of 402 cars. With this new contract, the total number of C2 trains in Munich's underground will increase to 85.
