Renfe to buy more hybrid trains
PUBLICLY-OWNED company Renfe has approved plans to buy 38 new hybrid trains for its Cercanias suburban lines at a cost of €365.6 million.
Renfe said the total cost of the purchase would be €473.9 million when the costs of storing and maintaining the trains during the next 15 years are included.
The trains are being bought to help Renfe renew its rolling stock and move from diesel to electric powered engines.
The new trains will be made up of three carriages and a generator, have top speeds of 160 kilometres per hour and will feature free wifi for travellers.
