Västtrafik has ordered a total of 45 three-car ZEFIRO Express trains from Bombardier. The EMUs will have an operating speed of 200km/h. Bombardier is also equipping these trains with a winter package to make sure they run reliably in harsh winter conditions. For instance, they will feature a robust propulsion system, single-axle drive and very good slip-slide regulation so that they can operate in conditions of -40 degrees and snow drifts of up to 80cm deep.
