CRRC Changchun signed a contract with Tel Aviv in December 2015 to deliver 90 trains and provide maintenance services for 16 years, according to Wang Run, the chairman of the company's board. The company is scheduled to deliver all of the vehicles by the end of 2021.

Lightweight materials including carbon fiber, aluminium composite board, and paper honeycomb were used in the construction of the train in order to keep the weight down and improve its efficiency.
