The Tokyo Metro 16000 series (東京地下鉄16000系, Tōkyō Chikatetsu 16000-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line in Tokyo, Japan, since November 2010.

Operations[edit]

The 16000 series sets are used on the following lines.

Design[edit]

The 16000 series uses Toshiba PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motors), offering 10% energy savings compared to the motors used in earlier 10000 series trains.[2][3]

The first 12 sets were manufactured by Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Hyogo Prefecture, but sets 16113 to 16128 were built by Hitachi in Yamaguchi Prefecture.[4][5]

Sets from 16106 onward feature a modified front end design with the emergency door offset to the left-hand side away from the driver's position.[6]

As of October 2017, the fleet consists of 37 ten-car sets,[7] formed as shown below, with car 1 at the Yoyogi-Uehara (south) end.[5]
