Improved Beijing‐Shanghai Bullet Train Introduced
The sleek-looking new trains offer an increase in elbow and leg-room, more conveniently-located power outlets, and free Wifi for passengers.
These new models are also capable of higher speeds — up to 400 km/hour (compared to the previous 300 km/hour) — and use 17% less energy than their predecessors.
The price of tickets on the improved route, meanwhile, remains the same. Production of more trains is planned to bring them to all high-speed lines around the nation.
