A quick and easy application of battery technology is to install it on existing or future Hitachi intercity trains.
Adding just one battery reduces emissions by more than 20% and offers cost savings of 20-30%.
Our intercity battery powered trains can cover 70km on non-electrified routes, operating at 125mph intercity speeds at the same or increased performance.
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.
