The latest subway car features advanced materials, technologies and systems. It is lighter, more energy-friendly and comfortable. It is also smart enough to adapt to different situations.

The body, truck frame, driver’s cabin and equipment cabin are all made of compound carbon fibers, reducing the train’s weight by 13 percent.

In addition, the latest sound-proof materials, structure and technologies applied can lower interior noise by at least 5 dB.

The train runs faster than ordinary subway trains, and can reach a top speed of 140 kilometers per hour on autopilot. What’s more, the windows can turn into a touch screen where passengers can surf the internet and watch videos.
