Speeding through Spain’s scenic countryside will soon be a breeze with these new Eva trains designed by the country’s national train operator Renfe.

Launching in 2019, the high-speed, low-cost train will link the cities Barcelona and Madrid at fares that will cost 20 to 25 percent less than the current fare (US$120) on the line’s sister service Ave—also the fourth fastest train line in the world.

Initially, the train will serve five daily routes between Madrid’s central station Atocha and the new El Prat de Llobregat station near Barcelona’s airport. With a speed of 180 mph, these trains will complete the journey in just three hours, just like Ave.

To enjoy a ride, travelers can make their bookings online and use biometric e-tickets to board the train. Best of all? All of the train cars are equipped with free Wi-Fi too.
