  • Medium-Low Speed Maglev

    CRRC ZELC has successfully constructed China's first medium and low-speed local transit maglev.

Medium-Low Speed Maglev in Changsha

CRRC's medium-low speed maglev train uses electromagnetic levitation and short stator linear motor traction technology. lts many features, including a minimal turning radius, strong climbing ability, high safety performance, low noise, low vibration, good climate adaptability and enhanced passenger comfort, make it an ideal choice for complex terrains and medium passenger capacity requirements. 

Five 3-car, medium-low speed maglev trains are currently operating on the Changsha South Railway Station-HuanghuaAirport Line in China. The line runs across 18.55km, making it the largest maglev track in the world. CRRC not only manufactures the vehicles, but also provides the majority of related equipment for the line including power supply systems, signaling and BEL locomotives.
