CAF is the supplier for the VRR Niederrhein-Münsterland project in the German region of North Rhine-Westphalia. 

These Civity BEMUs are of two types; a short type with 120 seats and long type with 160 seats, providing for significant capacity increases on many of the lines.  These battery-powered vehicles will run on non-electrified sections of the route and can charge their batteries when running under a catenary.

The vehicles are fitted out with wide entry areas to ensure that passengers can move around comfortably. The seats are arranged in rows and face-to-face seating modules. They also include wide and separated areas, including multi-purpose areas for wheelchair users, bicycles, pushchairs, etc. The units are fitted out with tables, sockets and WiFi connection for passenger use.
