China’s hyperloop completes first test runs, pushing ahead in the race for ultra-fast land transport
Pod travels at 50km/h (31mph) through vacuum tube at Chinese facility to check critical components and prepare for future experiments. The project aims to develop superconducting maglev trains that can carry passengers at speeds of 1,000km/h or more.
Jinan-made ‘electromagnetic sled’ sets world record
An ultrahigh-speed test device for electromagnetic propulsion – the “electromagnetic sled” – recently set a world record in Jinan, Shandong province. The device can propel an object weighing one metric ton or above at a speed of 1,030 kilometers per hour.
Chinese T-Flight successfully tests hyperloop technology
Chinese researchers have successfully carried out a systematic test on a cutting-edge transportation system involving a high-speed maglev train running in a low vacuum pipeline in North China.
Construction to start on test line for 1,000 km/h maglev train in North China
Construction will start on the test line for a low-vacuum maglev high-speed train with a speed of up to 1,000 kilometers per hour in Datong, North China’s Shanxi Province, as preparation work is done, the local government said.
China debuts the world’s first high-temp maglev prototype
The world’s first high-temperature superconducting high-speed maglev engineering prototype launched at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu. The vehicle is expected to bring disruptive changes to rail transit industry with the application of low vacuum tube (tunnel) technology.

China pours $1 billion into a ‘Hyperloop’ for cars
Arrivo, the upstart high-speed mass transit technology developer launched by a former co-founder of Hyperloop One, has inked a massive partnership with a Chinese state-owned infrastructure developer to help finance mobility projects around the world.
Hyperloop TT will build a track in China
It’s the first deal to be signed in China and could have massive ramifications for the industry.
China develops super railway with test speed of 1,500 km/h
China is developing a super high-speed rail system that could reach speeds of up to 1,500 kilometers an hour, a move China is making to compete with Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, an expert said.
China takes on Hyperloop with 1000 km/h ‘super maglev’ train
Researchers at China’s Southwest Jiaotong University recently built a prototype for a “super maglev,” a track that carries a train at incredibly high speed using magnetic levitation (maglev). What makes it so super? According to the researchers it’ll be capable of supporting speeds up to 1000 km/h (600 MPH).
China’s looking to one-up Elon Musk’s hyperloop
The China Aerospace Science and Industrial Corporation (CASIC), a well-heeled newcomer to the mass transit industry, is betting big on its supersonic T-Flight ‘flying train’. If created as proposed, T-Flight will be faster, with more extensive routes.
