At a science and education exhibition on the theme of “high-speed linear trains” in Beijing, it was revealed that new progress has been made in China’s ongoing development of high-speed linear motor cars, with the first full-scale superconducting running test having been conducted. In the future, the car aims to reach speeds of 1,000 kilometers per hour. The new high-speed linear combines magnetic levitation technology with low-vacuum technology to achieve ultra-high speeds. The research team completed a full-scale test line of the “New High-Speed Linear” in Datong City, Shanxi Province, and recently conducted the first running test.
The new high-speed linear train will be used in the future for transportation between very large cities. It is expected to reach speeds of up to 1,000 km/h, but experts say that this speed will not be easy to reach and will require an enormous amount of testing and step-by-step progress. The test team has already conducted ultra-high-speed magnetic levitation and electromagnetic propulsion tests under non-vacuum conditions, recording a speed of 623 km/h.
