Avelia Horizon - the world’s only double-deck very high-speed train

Beauty shot Alstom livery High-Speed Avelia

  • The only double-deck high-speed train in the world
  • Maximum speed of up to 350 km/h
  • Articulated for the best safety & comfort
  • Modularity for optimal passenger experience

Avelia Horizon™, the world’s only double-deck train running at over 300 km/h, offers high operational flexibility and guarantees the highest levels of safety and passenger experience, while reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Flexibility and modularity

The Avelia Horizon power car allows higher flexibility in train configuration, permitting to easily add or remove passenger cars, in line with traffic evolution or other operational needs.  The passenger cars are designed to allow customisation of sections as well. In addition, the interiors of the passenger cars can be reconfigured in record time to offer wide flexibility to operators and passengers.

Reduced operating costs

Thanks to its articulated architecture, the Avelia Horizon reduces operating costs. Indeed, the train has fewer bogies, which count for 30% of the cost of preventive maintenance, and has a reduced weight compared with conventional architecture. Avelia Horizon offers up to 40% more capacity than a single deck train with the same level of service and comfort, and therefore offers the lowest investment and operational costs per seat.
