Aerodynamic and futuristic shape adorns the new generation metro train set developed by CRRC Corporation Ltd of China. CRRC Corporation is the largest rolling stock manufacturer in the world. The train set in question has been tested using a Type A six coach set in Guangzhou. The train set has been developed by CRRC Qingdao Sifang. It follows a modular design and can be configured as a 2 to 12 coach train set.

These train sets are designed to be operated autonomously till speeds up to 140 Km/h. These trains use permanent magnet traction motors and Silicon-carbide inverters. To make these trains light and more energy efficient the coaches are made from carbon fiber. They have better sound insulation also for a more comfortable ride for the passengers.
