CRRC Qingdao Sifang, a subsidiary of CRRC, recently rolled out a prototype of its suspended monorail train. The Chinese rolling stock manufacturer has said that the maximum speed of the train is 70 km/h, the fastest of its kind in China.

Driven by a high-efficiency magnet motor, the experimental train runs along an overhead monorail.

The train can be composed of three or five cars, with a passenger transport capacity of 300 to 510 people, respectively.

The train has a strong climbing ability with a maximum incline in an altitude of up to 100 meters, over a length of 1,000 meters. The monorail system is suited for passenger transport in more scenic areas, mountainous regions and urban areas where road traffic is heavy.
