2 Market figures for worldwide rail transport VHS Light Rail Metro Mainline / Freight Ø Ø Source: Unife Page 2 September 13, 2009

3 Planned expansion of Europe s high-speed rail system by 2025 Status: February 2008 v 250 km/h Forecast 2025 v < 250 km/h Source: UIC Page 3 September 13, 2009

4 High-speed rail network growing worldwide: Examples Japan, Russia, China HS network in Japan China Planned high-speed network for passenger transport in China. 10,000 km dedicated passenger links will be built to create a network with four horizontal and four vertical axes. in operation being built being planned HS links in in Russia in operation being built being planned Source: UIC Page 4 September 13, 2009

5 High rail market share for trips up to four hours 100 Rail market share (in %) 50 Paris - Brussels 310 km Paris - Lyon 430 km Madrid - Seville 471 km Rome - Bologna 358 km Paris - London 494 km Stockholm - Göteborg 455 km Tokyo - Osaka 515 km Paris - Amsterdam 540 km % Airplane Rome - Milan 560 km 0 0 % HS train Travel time by train (in hours) Source: UIC Page 5 September 13, 2009

6 Example: Frankfurt Paris Carbon dioxide Greenhouse gas, climate change in kg per person and trip (including fuel processing) Airplane 1) 83,2 Car 95,2 Train 10, ) Including transport to and from airport via public rail transportation or car 2) Source: ifeu-institut Page 6 September 13, 2009

8 Environmental potential of high-speed rail Example California Planned link: San Francisco - Los Angeles CO 2 savings potential when the line begins operation in 2020: Up to 4.7 million tons a year To equal this amount, one would have to shut down the four biggest coal-fired power plants in Europe for roughly ¼ year!

9 Velaro Distributed traction End car Transformer car Power converter car Intermediate car Powered bogie Non-powered bogie Transformer Power converter Battery and charger Pantograph Velaro usable space 100% Articulated train usable space 90% 50 % powered bogies Traction and power supplies fully integrated in the under-floor area Page 9 September 13, 2009

10 Velaro The high-speed platform Advantages of distributed traction over power car Traction distributed over the entire train provides around 20% more seats for the same length train Improved acceleration and braking through more uniform effects of frictional forces Reduction in mechanical wear through distributed driving power Less stress on the tracks through lower axle loads More effective noise insulation, since traction components are under the floor Page 10 September 13, 2009

11 404 km/h world record Velaro E The world s fastest series production trainset Page 11 September 13, 2009

12 Velaro Development of a high-speed train from power car to distributed traction Technology Distributed traction (EMU) 2 nd generation 1 st generation Velaro CN Velaro E ICE 3 3 rd generation Velaro RUS 4 th generation Velaro D Evolution Power car (Push-Pull PP) TGV PSE ICE 1 ICE 2 Evolution Revolution Revolution Evolution Revolution Wettbewerb ICE is a registered trademark of DB AG Page 12 September 13, 2009
