For use in the colder regions of Europe, Alstom developed the Coradia Nordic multiple unit, which has so far only been used in Sweden under the designations X60, X61 and X62. They are the first production vehicles in the LIREX family and formed the basis for the Coradia Continental, which is being used in Germany as class 440. Both are manufactured in Salzgitter.
The X60 is the basic model that was ordered for S-Bahn-like services from Storstockholms Lokaltrafik to replace the old X1 and X10 series trains. A trainset consists of six cars, each two of which are supported on a common Jakobs bogie. Of the seven bogies, six are powered with an output of 250 kW per axle, resulting in a total of 3,000 kW. As with the LIREX, almost the entire power train is located on the roof, except for the traction motors. In the SL, two trains are usually coupled together, resulting in a total of 748 seats and 1,130 standing places. After 71 trains of the first series, the SL procured 12 more as X60A in 2012 and 46 more as X60B in 2016. While the X60A doesn't have any significant differences, the X60B has countless small improvements and the new European train management system ERMTS.
For regional traffic, other operators ordered a total of 83 X61 and X62, each consisting of four cars. The largest part is used at the Pendeltåg (commuter train), where exactly 49 X61 are running as a replacement for the 49 X11. The interior of the vehicles is generally somewhat more generous and they are powered on four of the five bogies, which results in 2,000 kW. The X62 are used in 12 examples at Norrtåg in northern regions of Sweden. The different designation can be explained by the top speed set at 180 km/h and the bistro compartment, which cannot be found on the other trains.
