Japanese Maglev train makes the TGV look like a kitten



It can reach 581 km/h, but in this video it does (loaded with passangers) 500 km/h, making the French TGV look like a little kitten. This means that it can deliver almost airplane-like performance. Simply amazing!

Comments for Japanese Maglev train makes the TGV look like a kitten

Kitten?!

Well, the TGV broke the world record last April, reaching 574,8 km/h.
Maglev just did 581 km/h.
6 more km/h doesn't make me think TGV looks like a kitten compared to the Maglev... :-/

yup

Yes, but the Maglev travels with passengers at 500km/h while the TGV doesn't regularly pass 300km/h. :think:

Chinese using 460km/h Maglev everyday

Shanghai Maglev is world's only commercial Maglev.

Avantage pour Alstom

Les TGV possèdent l'immense avantage de pouvoir utiliser les lignes classiques et ainsi de rejoindre un grand nombre de villes. Cela lui permettra de mieux se vendre à l'international dans sa nouvelle version : l'AGV. Le Maglev est hors de prix et il s'en construira très peu de lignes.
