Bombardier to Build 14 more TWINDEXX Vario Double-deck Cars for Lower Saxony

The transport association LNVG, which is responsible for local and regional transport in the German federal state of Lower Saxony, signed a contract with Bombardier Transportation on September 22, 2020 for the supply of 14 TWINDEXX Vario double-deck wagons – 12 trailers and 2 with a control cabin.

Thanks to the new order, the LNVG double-deck car fleet will increase to 246 units. Since the first delivery, Bombardier has been providing complete maintenance of rolling stock, maintaining 99% availability.

The new wagons are expected to enter service starting in autumn 2022 as part of trains serving connections to Hamburg, increasing their carrying capacity. All trains will be equipped with real-time passenger information systems and video surveillance, as well as a wireless Wi-Fi network.
