FS Group’s Trenitalia and Hitachi Rail signed a deal valued over one billion euros for 30 new Frecciarossa ETR 1000 trains with an option for ten additional units.

The first batch of these Hitachi Rail high-speed trains is set to be delivered starting April 2026, with a planned production rate of 8-10 vehicles per year.

This agreement should support the company's ten-year Industrial Plan to promote rail travel as a sustainable transportation option and meet the growing demand for medium and long-distance train connections in European markets.

Since 2010, Hitachi Rail has built 58 Frecciarossa 1000 high-speed trains for Trenitalia, with another six under construction. With this new order, the total count of these units, capable of reaching a maximum speed of 350 km/h, will reach 94 units.

Presently, Frecciarossa serves 120 destinations across Italy, offering over 250 daily connections. It also operates on tracks in Spain and France, as one of the key players in the European internationalisation of high-speed rail travel.
