China's new generation of medium and low speed magnetic trains, developed and manufactured by China, successfully completed the test expedition in Shanghai.
The train is expected to be launched in a year.
Qu Tianwei, chief engineer of CRRC Dalian, China's largest high-speed railway manufacturer, said in a statement that R & D work on next-generation magnetic trains has been launched 8 years ago.
Qu said that successful tests have made it possible to understand the basic technology of China's next generation magnetic suspension system.
The magnetic train was tested at a speed of 120 per hour during the test run.
The new generation of mid-low-speed magnetic trains has lower noise levels than traditional rail trains, as well as better climbing and longer service life.
China's first medium-low-speed magnetic rail line was launched in May 2016 in Changsha, Hunan Province, in the central part of the country, making China the first country to specialize in this technology.
According to a study by the Chinese Academy of Engineering, China plans to build more than 2020 medium-low-speed magnetic railway lines by 5.
