The Tōbu 50000 series (東武50000系?) is a commuter EMU operated by Tōbu Railway in Japan and manufactured by Hitachi, Ltd. to its "A-train" concept. The trains resemble the Seibu 20000 series EMUs, and represent the first use of aluminium body cars on Tōbu commuter trains. They are also the first Tōbu trains to feature bilingual (Japanese and English) automated passenger announcements.
