A quick and easy application of battery technology is to install it on existing or future Hitachi intercity trains.

As a climate change innovator, our suite of battery powered trains – for trams, commuter and intercity networks – is already helping reduce CO2 emissions in Japan, Italy, and now the United Kingdom.

Our first UK trail with a battery on an intercity train will pave the way for 100% battery-electric intercity train, capable of running up to 100km in battery mode in the next few years.

Hitachi Rail’s modular design means this can be done without the need to re-engineer or rebuild the train and return them to service as quickly as possible for passengers.
