Alstom delivered its first Régiolis next-generation regional train to the Pays de la Loire region on 18 November in the presence of Jacques Auxiette, President of the Pays de la Loire regional council, and Gilles Bontemps, council Vice President, together with Jacques Beltran, Vice President Sales and Marketing at Alstom Transport France. The first train was presented to council officials at a press tour of the Technicentre in Nantes.

The Pays de la Loire region has ordered twenty Régiolis trains, ten with dual-mode motors (diesel and electric) and ten diesels. 72 metres long, these trains have four carriages and provide 218 seats. Half the carriages also have automatic passenger counting systems. These will help improve the monitoring of passenger traffic and occupancy rates in order to optimise operations. SNCF staff in the Pays de la Loire region will receive training in the new train during November and December 2014, in preparation for its entry into commercial service in January 2015.

Régiolis is part of Alstom's Coradia range of trains. It is modular and can be adapted to the requirements of each region: it is available in three lengths (56, 72 or 110 metres), has four levels of comfort to suit the distances covered and offers dual-mode or electric motors. Régiolis is an economical and environmentally friendly train due to its low energy consumption and reduced maintenance costs. Finally, it is accessible to everyone, as it has low, platform-level floors throughout.

To date, 184 Régiolis trains have been ordered by 12 French regions. In addition, 34 Coradia Liner trains, based on the same technology, have been ordered by the state, bringing the total number of orders placed, within the scope the framework contract awarded to Alstom by SNCF in 2009, to 218 trains. The first trains entered commercial service in April 2014 and 50 trains will be delivered to the regions of Alsace, Aquitaine, Basse Normandie, Lorraine, Midi-Pyrénées, Pays de la Loire, Picardie, Poitou-Charentes and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur by the end of 2014.

Régiolis production generates over 4,000 jobs for Alstom and its suppliers across France. Six of Alstom's twelve sites in France are involved in the project: Reichshoffen for the design and assembly, Ornans for the engines, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the power train equipment, Villeurbanne for the on-board electronics and Saint-Ouen for the visual design.
