Velaro train family
2000 - 2008
Design for manufacture
The Velaro train family is designed to the last detail. Through its adaptability it has become a global success story.
Designed to fit
Through the customization of both exterior and interior design, the Velaro train family is a platform which can be adapted to the local and cultural needs in different countries - such as the AVE S103 in Spain, the CRH 3 in China, the SAPSAN in Russia and the ICE 3 and ICE-T in Germany.
“After envisioning the “big picture” and testing it with 1:1 walk-in models, we defined every single detail inside and outside the trains over the following years. The train family was then engineered by Siemens - without compromise.”
