Alstom offers an extensive range of rolling stock spanning the entire rail transport market, including very high speed, light rail transit, metro systems, suburban and regional trains, locomotives and freight trains.
Very high speed
Following on from the success of the TGV*, Alstom has developed the fourth generation of very high speed trains: the AGV (Automotrice Grande Vitesse). In 2007, Alstom and its partners – RFF and SNCF – set a new world rail speed record of 574.8 km/h.
With its tilting train technology, the Pendolino can travel at speeds of up to 250 km/h, without requiring specific changes to the infrastructure. Alstom has developed a range of regional trains that are reliable, efficient and comfortable.
The Coradia is available in a range of models, including the double decker Coradia Duplex and the Coradia Lirex, designed for use in the coldest of climates.
Alstom offers a range of modular, flexible commuter solutions through its high-capacity X'Trapolis trains, designed to carry passengers seamlessly between suburbs.
Alstom manufactures the world’s most powerful locomotives: the Prima offers a range of bespoke solutions for all rail networks, drawing on diesel and electric power.
Alstom offers a wide range of purpose-built freight cars for all kinds of specialised hauling, such as the transport of ore and voluminous, fragile and humidity-sensitive goods.
Alstom has supplied one in four metro systems operating around the world and has extensive expertise in both rail and rubber-tyred systems, showcased in its Metropolis range.
The Citadis range of trams offers highly effective, bespoke rolling stock solutions that allow customers to meet the individual needs of their city. One in three modern trams has rolled off Alstom’s production lines.
Alstom is also developing a range of flexible “tram-train” solutions through its Citadis Dualis range, able to run both in city centres like conventional trams and outside urban areas like conventional trains, carrying passengers at speeds of almost 100 km/h.
