The 19WE elec­tric mul­ti­ple unit is the first  NEWAG-manufactured elec­tric pas­sen­ger train. The 19WE elec­tric mul­ti­ple unit is an undi­vi­ded, four-section vehicle equ­ip­ped with a full inte­rior moni­to­ring sys­tem, air con­di­tio­ning and modern pas­sen­ger infor­ma­tion sys­tem and  tic­ket dispen­sers among others. The inte­rior was adap­ted to trans­port pas­sen­gers in whe­el­cha­irs. It has a whe­el­chair lift, wide aisles and space dedi­ca­ted for wheelchairs/bicycles. The vehicle uses modern bogies desi­gned and built espe­cially for this type of vehicle. The 70RSNa and 70RST bogies have a two-stage sprin­ging which damps vibra­tion effec­ti­vely, thus pro­vi­ding high com­fort of tra­vel­ling.

Depen­ding on the clients’ needs, the 19WE is pro­du­ced in the four or six-section ver­sion (20WE). Due to various possi­bi­li­ties of the pas­sen­ger com­part­ment lay­out, this train can be used both in sub­ur­ban and long-distance service. For long-distance service, toilets with her­me­ti­cally sealed reten­tion tanks, adap­ted for the disa­bled are provided.
