[SK / Expert] Škoda presents the first ‘Slovak Panter’ for ZSSK [corrected]

Škoda Transportation, in consortium with ŽOS Trnava, has presented the first out of 25 new EMUs for Slovak national passenger carrier, ZSSK

We knew there will be new EMUs in Slovakia and we knew their interior looks too. We have seen them on tests and the much-needed fleet renewal has been waiting for some time to get the new multiple units in its new homeland. On 06.02.2020 the first unit was officially presented.

The Škoda 7Ev/14Ev-products have no official name (yet), although several customers have placed orders (from the Czech republic (RegioPanters, InterPanters) and Latvia). But one name seems comes naturally, derived from the animal name used by ČD. Thus, Slovakia will get ‘Panters’ too.
