The extensively improved aerodynamics greatly reduces the tractive resistance compared to the preceding ICE trains. A lighter construction has also made it possible to cut the weight of a 200-meter-long train by approximately 20 metric tons. The energy consumption per seat is as much as 30 percent less than that of comparable trains.

DB will immediately order 130 trainsets from the framework order agreement valid until 2030

An order of an additional 90 trainsets is planned.

The potential order volume for the 220 trainsets totals some six billion euros.

DB can order the remaining 80 trainsets at any time.

With their ICx, Deutsche Bahn and Siemens are teaming up to put an entirely new train concept on the rails – as was the case with the ICE 3, which revolutionized the railway world with its distributed traction approach in the high-speed rail sector. The first ICx trains are expected to enter service in the course of 2016. The picture shows a design rendering of the new ICx in Lehrter Station in Berlin, Germany.

"This is a good day for the Germany economy. The trainsets, from their body shells through their final assembly, will be made entirely in Germany. This order will safeguard thousands of jobs, including many in the mid-sized supplier industry," explained the Federal Minister of Transport, Building and Urban Development, Dr. Peter Ramsauer.

The most modern train in the world: ICx will be the backbone of DB’s future long-distance network. The modular and flexible trainset design can be adapted in order to meet virtually all route operating requirements. In all, up to 24 different train configurations can be formed. This is made possible by the new Powercars, which carry all the components of a traction system in one car. The picture shows a design rendering of the new ICx.

The Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Bahn AG, Professor Utz-Hellmuth Felcht
, said:
"We are ensuring sustainable and successful further development of the company through the procurement of the new ICx trainsets."

The ICx heralds new standards in terms of flexibility, efficiency and comfort in long-distance rail travel.
For example, Deutsche Bahn will be able to “customize” the configuration of a train by adjusting the seating capacity, the number of bicycle compartments or the speed capability of the individual train according to the specific needs of any given route. This is internationally unique!
Besides that, the train is No. 1 when it comes to energy consumption per seat. The ICx is also equipped for cross-border operation. The basic train configurations are to be used in Germany and Austria, the 10-car variant in Switzerland as well. The picture shows a design rendering of the driver’s cab in the new ICx.

DB CEO Grube
"With the ICx, we are laying the cornerstone for the long-distance transportation of the future and setting new standards in terms of reliability, environmental compatibility and comfort. The rail system will benefit as a result. Our customers in particular can look forward to riding on the most modern trains in the world."

The redesigned interior offers more space for passenger accommodation. Overall, the ICx has a seating capacity that is 15 percent higher than comparable high speed trains.
The picture shows a design rendering of a 2nd class passenger area in the new ICx. Although it is able to accommodate up to 500 passengers, the train still offers the same level of traveling comfort. Despite the higher number of seats on board, a new-design seat generation gives passengers lots more space.
Unlike previous ICE trains, the backrest in the ICx no longer tips back but adjusts itself within the contour of the seat shell. The ergonomically designed seats are mounted on c-rails so that they can be shifted forwards and backwards like on an airplane. This ensures fast and easy adjustment of the seating arrangements whenever necessary.

"The energy efficiency and modularity of these vehicles offers unrivaled economical operation, while the flexible interior structure will provide a whole new level of comfort for passengers. The ICx is thus setting new standards for transportation between metropolitan areas and cities," said Siemens CEO Peter Löscher.

Modular interior design: The new ICx trainset comes with a roomy galley area that will increase service options for passengers in future. The layout of the glass case optically matches the new interior design concept of the ICx. Both trainset variants built for Deutsche Bahn will have a fully equipped onboard restaurant with 17 and 23, respectively, as well as a bistro section with stand-up tables.

The technical basis for the ICx is an innovative platform concept. However, it also incorporates tried-and proven components already successfully used in assorted fitting and equipment variants in other train series around the world.

Despite technical standardization of the vehicles themselves, the ICx provides a high level of flexibility for assembling up to 24 different train configurations.

This is made possible by "power cars," train cars equipped with all the components that drive units have.

As a result, the trains can be easily adapted to the volume of passengers and level of performance required.
In addition, the platform concept ensures considerably lower maintenance and service costs.

The ICx is built to also allow persons with limited mobility to enjoy their journey on board.
The trains have an wheelchair lift, areas reserved for wheelchairs and a spacious PRM-accessible toilette in the immediate area.

There will be two ICx variants.

The first is a seven-part multiple-unit train with three driven power cars.
It reaches a top speed of 230 kilometers per hour and has 499 seats.
This trainset will be used primarily in what is currently the IC network.
Relatively few of the route sections in this network can be driven at over 200 kilometers per hour, meaning this top speed is fully sufficient.

The second variant is a ten-part multiple-unit train with up to five power cars and 724 seats. It has a top speed of 249 kilometers per hour.
These ICx trainsets can thus replace the ICE 1 and ICE 2 fleet presently operating at a usual speed of 250 kilometers per hour. In terms of running technology, all ICx trainsets are able to run at 249 kilometers per hour.
The existing fleet of ICE 3 trains is available for speeds of over 250 kilometers per hour.

Each of the two ICx variants includes a fully equipped on-board restaurant with either 17 or 23 seats, as well as a bistro with a standing area.
In addition, the trains have a family compartment and eight reservation-only bicycle storage slots.

A pleasant ambience for traveling in comfort: Large panorama windows and a new lighting scheme provide plenty of light in the passenger area. A lighting strip in the floor shows the way to the exit doors.
The double seats in the 2nd class are equipped with a reservation display and a power socket. The 1st class seats are additionally equipped with reading lamps. Each car has as many as six ceiling monitors and a monitor in each vestibule to inform passengers about the train’s route and the services available on board.

When the seat is adjusted, the backrest no longer reclines backwards but instead moves within the shell contour of the seat.

All the first-class seats in the ICx are equipped with electrical outlets and with reading lamps that can be turned on as needed.

In second class, each double seat has one electrical outlet.

Every car is equipped with up to six ceiling screens and one monitor for passenger information per entryway.

For travelers with limited mobility, each train has a built-in boarding assistance ramp and handicapped accessible lavatory.

The first variant is a 7-car multiple unit with three Powercars that has a top speed of 230 km/h and offers seating for up to 500 passengers. This basic trainset is to be deployed above all in today’s intercity (IC) network.
The second variant is a 10-car multiple unit with as many as five power cars and 724 seats. It will have a maximum speed of 249 km/h.

Thanks to its significantly improved aerodynamic form, the ICx has far less running resistance than the ICE trains currently in use.

As a result of the lighter weight construction, it was also possible to reduce the weight for a 200-meter long train by some 20 metric tons.

Energy consumption per passenger is up to 30 percent lower than in comparable existing trains.

One focal point of the contract was specification of quality criteria.

For the first time in Europe, two ICx trainsets will be put through 14 months of trial operation, 12 of those in passenger service, before series production begins.

This will make it possible to identify improvement potential early on.

The contract parties also agreed on a seven-month monitoring phase during which the data from the trainsets in operation will be fed directly back to Siemens.

In addition, Siemens and DB will for the first time define joint milestones in the design and production phase that must be unanimously approved.

The first ICx trainsets are expect to enter into service in 2016.

The new trains will be commissioned by line.

Use of ICx trainsets for transportation in Germany will be given priority over neighboring European countries.
