The urban-type EG2Tv "Ivolga" electric multiple units were created by Transmashholding's designers in 2014 – 2016. Starting from April of 2017, these trains are being operated by CSPC.

The EG2Тv was based on the newest all-purpose platform comprising the possibility of emerging of the wide rolling stock family designed for different operational conditions. By their level of technical solutions, comfort and economic efficiency, the "Ivolga" trains correspond to the best international prototypes and even exceed them in terms of individual parameters. The EMU design was created with participation of a leading European design office focused on transport-relating topics. 

The spacious passenger saloons are equipped with systems maintaining continuous microclimate conditions and air disinfection, which operate in automatic mode. 

The EMU is designed considering the passage of the low-mobile passengers. It is equipped with wide doors (1,400 mm) and passages, which guarantee the free transit of wheelchair, as well as with large-spaced specially equipped WC compartments. Also, the reliable fixtures for wheelchairs are provided.  

"Ivolga" is to its maximum focused on the use of national developments and materials. The share of Russian components used for production of EMUs exceeds the 90%. 

Cost of EMU's ownership throughout the life cycle is 20% lower, as compared to massive serial trains. The savings generated on account of the lower cost of obligatory periodical maintenance and scheduled repairs is assessed at 30%. The energy-saving equipment allows for the 30% decrease of electric power consumption costs.

The EG2Тv EMU is a winner of "Prioritet-2016" ("Priority") National Award in the area of import substitution in the "Transport Priority" nomination. In December of 2017, "Ivolga" was granted the highest award of the "All-Russian Brand (IIIrd Millennium). Quality Mark of the XXI century" Contest – the Platinum Quality Mark.
