Siemens Mobility has founded a subsidiary, Smart Train Lease GmbH, to enable customers to flexibly supplement their fleets with leased state-of-the-art battery, hydrogen and electric trains.

What does this mean in practice? The Mireo Smart trains from Siemens Mobility are available at short notice, are approved for operation and meet all the standards required for modern regional passenger transport. By providing pre-configured trains and additional services such as maintenance, this new offer provides an economical alternative for expanding fleets quickly and flexibly. It also allows customers to test innovative and sustainable rail technologies. The new subsidiary will initially offer this rental model in Germany and plans to expand it across Europe in the medium term.

“The mobility transition has led to an extremely dynamic market for regional trains. Rail operators today are looking for more flexible and quickly available offers as new technologies further increase sustainability in rail transport. By founding Smart Train Lease GmbH, we’ve created an innovative rental model for highly standardized regional trains. Its cost position, reliability and speedy delivery time make it a new and especially attractive offer for our customers,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility.

“We want to make renting trains as easy and simple as renting a car, and thus help accelerate the mobility transition. This service will further enhance the attractiveness of rail transport for passengers and enable our customers to react quickly to fluctuating demand,” said Benjamin Dobernecker, CEO Smart Train Lease GmbH.

Smart Train Lease aims to make the rental process comparable to that of a car rental. The entire train, including maintenance, is leased as a complete package.
