Has the rail industry taken a few tips from the automotive bus industry? China have just launched the world’s first track train which runs along white-dotted lines controlled by hundreds of sensors. Its lithium titanate battery enables the train to run 25 kilometres after just ten minutes of charging. The train is 32 metres long and 3.4 metres high, can accommodate 307 passengers and has a top speed of 70 kilometres per hour. Travelling at a top speed of 70 kilometres per hour, how soon can we expect to see this new innovation on roads around the world?
