Malaysia's trains are going to be designed by BMW DesignworksUSA. Based on the Metro Inspiro by German train manufacturer Siemens and built by Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT), the new M-striped trains will be on duty soon enough in Kuala Lumpur.
A total of 58 driverless trains will be in service as of 2017, with each four-car train-set to have a capacity of 1,200 passengers and a 30-year life cycle.
“The exterior design is a bold statement of dynamism and strength. It symbolizes self confidence, technological leadership, progress and safety,” commented Laurenz Schaffer, President of BMW Group DesignworksUSA.
