MAV to start IC+ coaches series production

MÁV ZRt, the Hungarian state-owned railway company, plans to launch the series production of InterCity Plus  (IC+) coaches, if the necessary financial resources will be made available by the company. 

“We have obtained all necessary licences to produce coaches that meet European standards”, MÁV chairman-CEO Ilona Dávid stated in an interview for the local press. 

MÁV presented the two prototypes in May 2013. The four-axle passenger coaches can be pulled at a  maximum speed of 200 km/h. The developing project cost is estimated at  HUF 1.4 bln, including a HUF 462 mln from EU grants.
