Electric trains from Škoda are already widely popular in the Czech Republic for regional transport. The units for RegioJet will be customised to the carrier's unique needs, and they will bring the renowned comfort to the Ústí nad Labem Region by the end of 2026. This ambitious project aims to cover 3.3 million kilometres annually over a span of 15 years, substantially enhancing both service quality and capacity.

The new low-floor units, designed for operation on suburban and regional lines, will be capable of speeds of up to 160 km/h. The two-car unit will be 53 m long with 142 seats, while the 80 m long three-car unit will offer 228 seats. A first-class compartment will be included.

“We are proud to announce this historic investment, which will not only significantly expand our capacity, but also take the standards of comfort, safety, and environmental sustainability of our services to a whole new level. We plan to invest more than CZK 4.5 billion in our fleet this year and next,” comments Radim Jančura, owner of RegioJet.

“Our trains are very popular, and we couldn't be happier that the largest private carrier in Central Europe has chosen them for its lines in the Ústí nad Labem Region. These electric units for RegioJet will be adapted to the needs of our customer and the Ústí nad Labem Region. They will offer passengers high-quality comfort and safety on the lines. We believe that this purchase is a fantastic symbol of rail transport’s continued growth as one of the most environmentally friendly ways to get around,” says Jan Švehla, Head of Group Communications at Škoda Group.

The electric units are designed with passenger comfort in mind. This includes a fully air-conditioned train interior, 
Wi-Fi, 230 V power sockets, USB sockets, barrier-free entrances and interior, ergonomic seats, and a spacious storage area for bicycles and prams. Each train is equipped with a spacious toilet for passengers with reduced mobility, while the three-car unit also includes one standard toilet. Advanced safety features and cutting-edge technology, including ETCS equipment, ensure compliance with the latest industry standards.
