The units have a top speed of 100 km/h (62 miles) and can run on 1200V DC Third Rail and 15kV AC overhead power supply, the latter being exclusive to the .3 variant of the BR 474. There were 112 BR 474s built in total, 24 of these being the .3 variation.
The first BR 474s were ordered in 1994 to begin replacing older units on the Hamburg S-Bahn, which itself was nearing 60 years old. The initial batch of 45 units was delivered in 1996 and featured a number of improvements to their predecessors, including computer control.
A second batch of BR 474s was ordered in 1996 and deliveries of these finished in 2001. However, the BR 474 did have some rather significant problems in the late 1990s, where heavy vibrations caused deficiencies with the ventilation, engine and door opening mechanism.
The BR 474.3 was delivered between 2006 and 2007, nine new coaches and 33 from the second batch made up these new units., The main difference between the .3 and other variations of the Class is the addition of a pantograph in the intermediate coach so they can also run on 15kV AC overhead power lines.
A modernisation of the BR 474 was planned for 2012 and they were to be known as the 474 Plus. However, apart from a prototype which was upgraded and shown publicly in July 2011, no other units have currently been modernised due to high costs and a lack of available funding.
