As ICE 4 and BR 412 called the German railway, the new generation of high-speed trains Intercity Express (ICE) for long-distance passenger transport. Siemens Mobility / Bombardier was commissioned in 2011 with the development and construction of 137 trains for the time being. Since December 2018, 19 twelve-car trains have been in operation throughout Germany, and the remaining trains are expected to be operational by December 2020. A total of up to 300 new ICE will be purchased. The trains are intended as trainsets for passenger traffic. They are powered by several independently driven cars, so-called Powercars, which are distributed over the train.
The new ICE trains are made up of five types of wagons: end cars, powered midcar (Powercar), non-powered middle cars, dining cars and service cars. The trains can also be used coupled in double traction. The exterior design of the trains was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in 2015. The first series of 130 multiple units comprises 45 dividers and 85 twelve-dividers. A registration for Austria and Switzerland is planned. A later approval for France, Luxembourg, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic is planned as an option.
