Under the contract Elron will receive six dual-system electric trains with the possibility of ordering ten more similar ones in the future. Škoda Vagonka’s competitor was Stadler, the current train manufacturer for Elron.

The bids were evaluated according to 11 different criteria. They included a comparison of train costs, parameters, energy consumption, maintenance costs, capacity and speed characteristics. Škoda’s offer turned out to be the best in terms of both price and operating costs.
