China Unveils ‘Fastest Ground Vehicle In the World’
China has unveiled its new maglev train that’s being touted as the fastest ground vehicle in the world with a maximum speed of 372 mph (600 kph). USA Today reports: The train uses electro-magnetic force, making it “float” so there is no contact between the rail and the body, Reuters reported. The debut of the super fast train could cut down time for people traveling from Beijing to Shanghai to only 2.5 hours. That’s a distance of 754 miles and currently a 4.5-hour train ride on one of China’s bullet trains. China’s newest train is expected to be ready for commercial use within the next decade.
