Description:
The MF 2000 is a model of steel-wheeled electrical multiple units used on Paris's Metro system. The cars first arrived in December 2007 and delivery will be completed by 2015. RATP ordered 160 trains or 800 cars in 2001, to replace the aging MF 67. It is used on Line 2, Line 5 and Line 9.

The trains were manufactured by a consortium of four train manufacturers, namely Alstom, Bombardier, Technicatome and CSEE at a cost of 800 million. It was the first time in history that the RATP has assigned four manufacturers to manufacture different components of the train cars. This process delayed the delivery by a year due to poor collaboration between the four companies, but the RATP has seen a drop in costs.

The train's exterior was the result of a design competition, and the winning design is similar to the MP 89. The interior also looks similar to MP 89's interior, but with new security features added. The trains are the first rolling stock on the Paris Metro to include air-conditioning.
