China's first self-developed 160 kilometer-an-hour magnetic levitation train rolled off the production line in Changsha, Hunan on June 13

  The train can run up to 160 km per hour, compared with the first generation's top speed of 100 km per hour.

  It also has a 30-percent increase in traction efficiency and can carry up to 500 passengers with three carriages.

  China's first medium-low-speed maglev rail line was put into commercial operation in May 2016 in Changsha.

  CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive is also developing a more advanced maglev model with a top speed of 200 km per hour.
