Fast and safe public transportation services determine the quality of life and the competitiveness of cities and regions around the world and will play a key role in the 21st century. To meet the requirements for optimized traffic flows and reduced CO2 emissions in the cities of today and tomorrow, we have developed a metro that sets new standards in its class: Inspiro® – the metro from Siemens.
Innovative metro platform
Public transportation systems such as metro lines need to ensure that passengers are transported in a safe and comfortable environment while also meeting economic and environmental requirements. That’s why we paid special attention to these factors during the development of Inspiro – and created a metro for the future.
The Inspiro’s modern and distinctive vehicle design is immediately impressive. It was developed in collaboration with Designworks, a BMW Group Company. The exterior with its dynamic front end is striking and makes a lasting impact on a city’s image.
With the Inspiro, the platform concept and flexibility are not contradictions: The concept of Inspiro offers many versions and equipment options.
The Inspiro’s energy efficiency is based on two factors – its weight-saving design and energy-efficient technologies.
Many features of the Inspiro provide improved system capacity to ensure even greater efficiency in operation of the vehicle fleet:
|Zugkonfiguration||6-Teiler, 66% Motorisierung||2- bis 8-Teiler, bis 100% Motorisierung|
|Stromversorgung||750 VDC, 3. Schiene||1.500 V, Oberleitung|
|Wagenlänge (über Kupplung)||20,1 m/19,4 m (End-/Mittelwagen)||18,6 m bis ca. 22,0 m|
|Wagenbreite (über Türschwelle)||2,77 m||2,63 m bis ca. 3,0 m|
|Anzahl Fahrgasttüren je Wagenseite/Türbreite||4 / 1.400 mm||3 / 1.400 mm|
|Max. Achslasten||Ca. 13 t||Ca. 16 t bis 17 t|
|Sitzkonfiguration||Längsbestuhlung||Quer- und Mischbestuhlung|
|Passagierkapazität je Zug (7 Pers./m2)||1.450 Passagiere||Abhängig von Sitzkonfiguration, Zug- und Wagendimensionen|
|Sitzplätze je Zug||256||Abhängig von Sitzkonfiguration, Zug- und Wagendimensionen|
|Max. Betriebsgeschwindigkeit||80 km/h||100 km/h|

More than 900 metro trains from Siemens are in operation worldwide and are used by about three billion passengers per year. Here are a few examples of cities and places around the world where our metros are operating.
In November 2010, Siemens was commissioned with the delivery of 21 new six-car trains – including an option for an additional 46 trains.
The vehicles will replace the trains that have been in service for the Stadtwerke München for as long as 40 years.
The new metro trains enable shorter train intervals and a higher passenger capacity.
In February 2011, Metro Warsaw ordered the production and delivery of 35 new six-car metro trains from Siemens.
All 35 trains were delivered to Warsaw by 2014.
The metro trains for Warsaw are the first complete vehicles from the Inspiro family.
In September 2015, the operator of Bulgaria’s Sofia Metro awarded an order to Siemens to supply 20 metro trains – including an option for an additional ten trains.
The three-car trains are manufactured in collaboration with partner Newag SA.
The metro trains from the proven Inspiro family are intended for use on the new Line 3.
Verkehrs-Aktiengesellschaft (VAG) in Nuremberg was looking for a replacement for its old DT1-type two-car trainsets.
In November 2015, Siemens received an order to deliver 21 type G1 four-car metro trains.
The order includes two options for another 13 trains.
