China Unveils Design for Next-Gen Maglev Train That Can Travel from Beijing to Shanghai in Just 15 Minutes

A Chinese technology company has announced it has begun research on a next-generation maglev train that could reach a theoretical top speed of 4,000 kilometers per hour, thereby cutting travel time between Shanghai and Beijing from the current 4.5 hours to just 15 minutes.

The China Aerospace Science and Industry Cooperation (CASIC) made the astounding announcement Wednesday, releasing a proof-of-concept video in which passenger capsules equipped with cutting-edge maglev technology travel inside vacuum tubes in order to reduce friction.






China has already been working on a high-speed train that could reach potential speeds of 600 kilometers per hour. However, Chinese Academy of Engineering bullet train expert Liu Youmei recommended that, under current conditions, high-speed trains should not exceed 400 kilometers per hour due to increasing operational costs, adding that ultra-fast trains should only be used for demonstrating new concepts and technologies rather than commercial operation.
