IMPULS II EMU draws from the first series of IMPULS family EMUs and it was cre­ated based on the expe­rience NEWAG SA gained during their pro­duc­tion and with the insi­ghts offe­red by rail ope­ra­tors and pas­sen­gers. The IMPULS II vehicle struc­ture is com­pliant with PII accor­ding to EN12663 stan­dard, it has the C1 cra­sh­wor­thi­ness design cate­gory (accor­ding to EN 15227) in all four col­li­sion sce­na­rios. Its desi­gners paid par­ti­cu­lar atten­tion to safety and tra­vel­ling com­fort. The pas­sen­ger area is equ­ip­ped with the pas­sen­ger infor­ma­tion sys­tem, a GPS moni­to­ring sys­tem, com­for­ta­ble seats and lug­gage racks. Addi­tio­nally, the EMU has elec­tric soc­kets, bicycle racks, a baby chan­ging sta­tion and lifts for the disa­bled. The EMU tra­vels with an ope­ra­tio­nal speed of 160 km/h.
