The Bombardier MOVIA C951 is the first generation of rolling stock for the Downtown Line and is fully automated.
The use of medium-frequency converters instead of the conventional converters result in weight savings, and each train has an overall weight reduction of 5 tonnes. This would translate to fleet-wide energy savings of 2000MWh per year, enough to power 430 HDB flats.
The trains are made out of high capacity aluminum car bodies, resulting in slow-life cycle costs. This makes the train 90% recyclable at the end of its life-cycle.
A total of 88 trains of three cars each have been ordered. Currently, the trains are progressively being delivered to Singapore, and are housed in Kim Chuan and Gali Batu Depots.
