On March 14, 2017 Alstom’s hydrogen-powered passenger train successfully performed the first test run at 80 km/h on its own test track in Salzgitter, Lower Saxony (Germany).

An extensive test campaign will be conducted in Germany and Czech Republic in the coming months before the Coradia iLint will go on its first passenger test runs on the Buxtehude–Bremervörde–Bremerhaven–Cuxhaven (Germany) route in the beginning of 2018.

The Coradia iLint is the first low floor passenger train worldwide powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, which produces electrical power for the traction. This zero-emission train is silent and only emits steam and condensed water.
