Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB) municipal operator of the Stuttgart, Germany, light rail system has signed an order with Stadler for 40 39.1m eight-axle DT8.16 sets, with an option for 30 more, with capability for 80km/h operation. 
Delivery from Stadler Pankow in Berlin will start in spring 2026. 
They will be equipped with the latest interior improvements to assist mobility-impaired passengers, with four rather than two multi-function areas and have a capacity of 250 passengers (98 seated). 
After delivery, there will be 103 Stadler-built sets working upon the system. The new batch will replace the 40 oldest LRVs in the fleet, DT8.4 dating from 1985/6. 
Information on the contract price has been withheld as financing will come from KfW IPEX bank. 
Although the new cars will carry the familiar yellow livery with black trim, there will be exterior design changes for the first time.
