This hybrid dual-mode train is able to access electricity from either the overhead catenery or the 2 onboard diesel generators. This dual mode enables services to operate on electrified and non-electrified lines, it is able to seemlessly interchange between the modes even while at speed.
The AGC trainsets are designed as modular articulated units, with two basic body shells: a powered driving car at either end and one or two unpowered intermediate sections with a low floor 590mm above the rail. A single 1300mm wide doorway is provided in the centre of each car.
One disabled-accessible toilet is fitted in one driving car, where accomodation for two wheelchair users is also provided. A multifunction space in the other driving car can be fitted out to accomodate a luggage/bicycle/ski rack area, or a small buffet as required. The modular design allows the interior configurations to be varied to meet requirements.
