Stadler provided another double-deck electric train for the Hungarian Railways
Stadler is fulfilling a large order for a total of 40 EZT Kiss double-deck trains for the Hungarian Railways.
In April 2017, the Hungarian railways MÁV signed a framework contract for the supply of forty Kiss double-deck EMUs from Stadler. Initially, 11 electric trains were ordered, then 8 more trains were ordered as an option under the contract in 2018.

“Stadler has already handed over 31 trains to the carrier, the next one will be delivered at the beginning of March 2022,” Marta Jarosinska, Communications and Marketing Director, Stadler Polska
Double-decker KISS trains, made for the Hungarian operator MAV, are transported directly to Hungary from the Stadler plant in Minsk (Belarus) from autumn 2020. Transportation is carried out through Poland.
