Earlier this month, the Swedish eco-train ‘Gröna Taget’ or ‘green train’ set a new national speed record of 202 km/h. The Bombardier Regina Gröna Taget train saves 20-30% energy compared to the traditional Bombardier Regina trains, which operate at maximum speeds of 200 km/hr during regular traffic.

The trains feature two key eco-friendly design features: a Permanent Magnet motor to increase energy efficiency and optimize power and a driver assistance system, which saves 15% of typical traction energy by displaying speed and traction force information to drivers.
