In einem Triebwagen der Baureihe 642 erproben Deutsche Bahn und MTU den Prototyp des MTU-Hybrid-Powerpacks. Der Test soll nachweisen, dass diese Technik mittel- und langfristige ökonomische und ökologische Vorteile für den Zugverkehr bietet, indem sie bis zu 25 Prozent weniger Kraftstoff verbraucht und emissionsfreies Fahren z.B. im Bahnhof ermöglicht.
