A major event today at the Siemens Mobility plant in Krefeld: the first Mireo Smart celebrates its official launch. On the same occasion, Siemens Mobility announced that it is expanding its options for alternative drives. Siemens has officially launched the Mireo Smart.
“Mireo Smart is a response to the challenges of a changing transport landscape and the growing popularity of rail mobility. We offer rail operators a preconfigured train that can be delivered in a very short time and guarantees high reliability and availability,” Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility, said the other day. “What’s new is that we now also offer Mireo Smart with alternative drive systems. By offering this environmentally friendly option, we give our customers even greater flexibility in adapting to the different requirements of their rail networks.”

Mireo Smart offers regional and commuter rail operators a highly efficient procurement process that takes only a maximum of 18 months from order placement to start of operations. This allows transport operators to react quickly and flexibly to growing demand and expand their fleets without lengthy delays. A standardised concept allowing certain configuration options not only reduces procurement costs but also simplifies subsequent operation. The sales process, based on a specification sheet with fixed conditions, is transparent and uncomplicated, making it easier to order trains.
During this process, customers can also purchase a service contract with a package of spare parts and maintenance to maximise the profitability of their operations.
With a seating capacity of 214 and space for 21 bikes and two wheelchairs, the Mireo Smart offers the highest level of comfort and convenience for its passengers. The trains are also equipped with high-capacity air conditioning, on-board internet services, passenger information and security monitoring systems and large TFT screens in the entrance areas. The trains will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant and development unit in Krefeld.
