filed on: 07.08.2020 (7th Aug 2020)
The European Commission has approved the Acquisition of Bombardier Transportation by Alstom. Conditions include the divestment of certain Bombardier designs including the Zefiro high-speed train (jointly developed with Hitachi) and the Talent 3 family of multple units. Alstom must diverst the Coradia Polyvalent multiple units. It will be interesting to see who gets to buy these businesses. The Flexity tram appears not to be affected. The acquisition is expected to close in the first half of 2021, so the rest Züich Flexity order will probably be delivered under the Alstom label after that date.
