Hitachi Rail Reveal Vision of High Speed Rail
The UIC High Speed Congress is currently taking place in Tokyo, and Hitachi Rail is presenting its headline vision for the future of high speed rail.
A 3D film has been exclusively released by Hitachi Rail, featuring its conceptual train interior. Extensive user research and passenger studies have gone into designing the interior. The high speed vision encompasses Hitachi’s expertise in delivering rolling stock for the Shinkansen and for High Speed 1 in the UK.
Hitachi Rail have taken design inspiration from existing rolling stock in Japan and the UK. The aim is to address the needs of future passengers and provide a train that has the flexibility to grow and evolve with society. Design has not just came from the rail industry, it has also come from the automotive and the aeronautical industries. The combination of the three sectors gives the train the comfort, speed, efficiency and aesthetics it needs.
