The Stadler EC250 is a high-speed electric multiple unit train under development by Stadler Rail of Switzerland for the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). According to Stadler Rail, it is to be the world's first single-decker low-floor high-speed train.[1]

The 11-car units are to operate with a top speed of 250 km/h (160 mph) and have a length of 200 metres (660 ft); they are to accommodate up to 400 passengers (117-1. class 286-2. class). In 2014, Stadler Rail won a tender to deliver 29 units by 2019 for CHF 980 million (c. USD 1.1 billion), with an option for up to 92 more. The trains are initially intended to replace the ETR610 trains on the transalpine route between Milan and Basel / Zürich.[2]
