Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has won a contract to supply
European rail operator Abellio Rail Sudwest GmbH with 43 BOMBARDIER TALENT 2
multiple unit trains. The order is valued at approximately 215 million euro
($244 million US).

Starting in June 2019, the new electric multiple units will gradually enter
passenger operation on the Stuttgart regional network in Baden-Wurttemberg's
Neckar Valley region in Germany. Bombardier will supply all 43 trains to
Abellio by June 2020. The multiple-unit trains will be built at the
Bombardier site in Hennigsdorf, Germany and the bogies are to be produced at
the Bombardier plant in Siegen, Germany.

"Abellio has already established a long-standing successful collaboration with
Bombardier, which we will now continue in the Neckar Valley region network.
We consider the company a reliable partner and together with them we will
happily provide our passengers with a comfortable and safe travel experience
on the way to their destination," said Abellio CEO Stephan Krenz at an event
to mark the contract signing. "With these new vehicles, we also want to set
new standards in Baden-Wurttemberg that attain the same quality of leadership
as we have achieved on the North Rhine-Westphalia networks," explained Krenz.

"This order is a great achievement for Bombardier's rail business and it also
signifies the continuation of our successful and cooperative relationship
with Abellio," said Germar Wacker, President of Mainline and Metros,
Central/Eastern Europe at Bombardier Transportation. "We are pleased that
Abellio relies on our modern TALENT 2 trains to further expand its mobility
offering in Germany. These vehicles feature a high degree of passenger
comfort and score points with their strong performance in terms of energy
efficiency and reliability."

The TALENT 2 trains for Abellio will be configured into 24 three-car and 16
five-car train sets, each with 163 or 273 seats respectively. These vehicles
will be equipped with Wi-Fi and provide easy access for travellers with
limited mobility as well as space for either 24 or 39 bicycles. In total,
more than 350 of Bombardier's TALENT 2 trains are already in service on
Germany's rail network. These trains form the backbone of the German national
rail operator Deutsche Bahn's regional fleet and are also in use by private
transport companies such as Abellio, National Express and the Southwestern
German Transport Company (SWEG). Thanks to their modular design principle,
the TALENT 2 train can be flexibly adapted and used as both commuter and
regional transport.

The contract with Abellio is another achievement for Bombardier in the most
recent tenders in Baden-Wurttemberg. The company asserted itself last year as
a train supplier for Deutsche Bahn Regio AG with the TALENT 2 trains during
the tender for the regional network Gau-Murr. The so-called
"Baden-Wurttemberg Model" is supporting the vehicle financing for both
networks. This arrangement sees the transport company selling the vehicles to
the regional rail authority of Baden-Wurttemberg (Landesanstalt
Schienenfahrzeuge Baden Wurttemberg, SFBW) with the regional rail authority
leasing them back to the transport company.
