Avril is a very high-speed, high-capacity and dual track-gauge train which Renfe would operate in almost every route of the Spanish rail network in the following years. With a total seating capacity of 521 it would be the most efficient train in the Spanish rolling stock fleet.
Avril will have multi-system capabilities and will also be certified to operate in France. It will thus be Renfe´s best technological tool to position railway in Spain as a clean and sustainable transport mode, the best possible way towards a swift transition into a low-carbon economy. Rail network manager Adif will have its own Avril inspection train.
