The British Rail Class 802 is a type of bi-mode multiple unit train being built by Hitachi Rail Europe for Great Western Railway, TransPennine Express and Hull Trains, based on the Hitachi A-train design.

The train is part of the Hitachi AT300 product family. Train operating companies have given the train separate brands. On Great Western Railway, they are known as Intercity Express Trains (IET). When they enter service with TransPennine Express, they will be known as Nova 1 and when they enter service with Hull Trains, they will be known as Paragon.

The type were first used on the Great Western Main Line, running from London to Plymouth and Penzance, and on the Cotswold Line. The first two units entered traffic on 18 August 2018

Class 802 (electro-diesel) are very similar to the Class 800 units, but Class 802 units have uprated diesel engines and larger fuel tanks. The Class 802 units are broadly identical to the Class 800 bi-mode trains used in the Intercity Express Programme, and are used in a similar way; they run as electric trains where possible, and are equipped with the same diesel generator engines as the Class 800. However, they utilise higher engine operating power 700 kW (940 hp) per engine as opposed to 560 kW (750 hp) and are fitted with larger fuel tanks to cope with the gradients and extended running in diesel mode expected on the long unelectrified stretches they will operate on.
