The Kawasaki Heavy Industries & CRRC Qingdao Sifang C151C trains are the sixth generation of rolling stock for the North-South and East-West Lines.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries & CRRC Qingdao Sifang C151C
12 trains of 6 cars each, numbered 701/702 to 723/724
Contract 151C for the design and building of 12 trains was awarded to the consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CRRC Qingdao Sifang on 22 September 2015.
Similar to the C151A and C151B trains, Kawasaki Heavy Industries oversees the project and design while CRRC Qingdao Sifang handles the manufacturing and testing of the rolling stock.
These trains were purchased to further increase the capacity of the North-South and East-West Lines with the upgraded moving block signalling system by Thales, enabling both lines to reach the maximum capacity of the new system.
The first train, 701/702, was delivered into Singapore on 27 October 2017, and the first two trains entered service on 30 September 2018.
The C151C trains carry the standard Land Transport Authority livery on its exterior: a white and black background, with the line colours of both the North-South and East-West Lines down the middle.
The body shell of the train is the same as the C151B trains.
The train numbers are displayed on a yellow LED display at the top of the right windscreen.
The tip-up seats can be lifted up to create more standing space for commuters, increasing the capacity during peak periods.
Two wheelchair bays are located in the middle of every C151C train at doors 12 and 13.
The Emergency Communication Button is positioned lower, enabling wheelchair-bound passengers to gain access to the feature.
Provide support for passengers boarding or alighting the trains and for passengers standing near the doors.
Red warning lights that are positioned above each door will light up when the doors are closing.
STARiS 2 is installed in all C151C trains. Liquid Crystal Displays and LED door opening indicators were built into the panels above all 48 doors of the train.
It provides commuters with their route information throughout their journey, and indicates which side the doors will open.
Emergency exits are located at both ends of the train.
The emergency exit ramp will be deployed in an emergency.
Emergency Communication Buttons are located at the side of the train doors to contact the train staff in an emergency.
