Stadler came out on top in the first non-technology-specific competitive tender for vehicles with alternative drive systems (no diesel) in Germany.

A 10-day objection period followed notification to the losing bidders that Stadler was to be awarded the contract (Stadler presented its battery-powered Flirt vehicle to the public for the first time at InnoTrans 2018).

Stadler’s contract also includes maintenance of the vehicles for 30 years.
