S-446 Electric railcar

This series was designed in the 1980s thanks to trials of a new type of stock to cover requirements for the major rise in transport demand in large Spanish cities. Initially, the 445.001 prototype was developed and built by domestic manufacturers with support from the Centre for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI). This initiative was modified to construct the 446 series, which has a different configuration (Engine-Trailer-Engine) to previous series: over 2,000 kW of power; an acceleration of over 1m/s2; an interior layout enabling 700 seated and standing passengers; greater accessibility, and new amenities for passengers. A modernisation and extended useful life process for the series began in 2005.
