Unlike the world’s first maglev train, China’s new hydrogen-electric train has a built-in hydrogen power system that enables it to travel 373-miles on a single charge. This is no bullet train though, as it has a maximum speed of 99.4 mph, which is plenty fast for urban transport. The powertrain consists of a hydrogen fuel cell and supercapacitor, rather than a traditional catenary power supply system.
