Its GTO-VVVF propulsion system was supplied by Siemens. The ability to produce a "fa-so-la-ti-do-re-mi-fa-so" scale when the propulsion starts up quickly became a signature to the 2100 series when it was introduced, earning the nickname as the "singing train" (歌う電車). Subsequently, similar propulsion was also installed on 56 cars of the N1000 series. The uniqueness of the propulsion system made its way into various music and popular culture, such as Super Bell"Z. However, it was reportedly expected that this feature may soon disappear, as substitute parts are no longer available when the propulsion system is due for replacement in a decade or earlier.

“No civilization ... would ever have been possible without a framework of stability, to provide the wherein for the flux of change. Foremost among the stabilizing factors, more enduring than customs, manners and traditions, are the legal systems that regulate our life in the world and our daily affairs with each other.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
“Few speeches which have produced an electrical effect on an audience can bear the colourless photography of a printed record.”
