agvdoc.jpgAGV (Automotrice à Grande Vitesse - high speed railcar) is the latest high speed train from Alstom. It's the successor of the TGV even if this time SNCF doesn't take part of its development. As the TGV, the AGV uses the axle placed between the cars but however the engine is distributed along the train, on the bogies, so the AGV got more space for passengers and more lightness, notice that the AGV is the only train with the TGV 001 to have both intermediate bogies and distributed engine. The AGV's engine also used permanent magnets'engines improving its ratio power/weight, running cost and maintenance cost regarding the TGV.

Prototype PEGASE assembled in La Rochelle's factories in February 2008 staid six months in Czech Republic for a test campaign.

AGV has been used first by private Italian company Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori which has bought 25 trains in 2011.
