In a ceremony marking completion of the last of ten new EMUs for Zagreb, Minister of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure Mr Sinisa Hajdaš Dončić inspected the new vehicles at KONČAR’s Električna vozila manufacturing plant. Commenting on the delivery by a domestic manufacturer, the Minister said: “This is a truly positive and beautiful tale coming from Croatia, which proves, along with statistical data, that Croatia is growing and working hard too.”

Croatian Railways ordered 44 vehicles worth 1.63bn Croatian Kuna for delivery by 2017

Darinko Bago, Chairman of the Management Board at  KONČAR added: “This is a state-of-the-art low-floor train, which can travel at 160 km/h. The train complies with all European standards. On this day, we present to you three trains joined together to form one train in a very simple way, which will enable the train set to carry approx. 1,200 passengers all at once. This train represents the pinnacle in technological achievement in terms of this train category.”
