A new type of medium-low-speed magnetic levitation (maglev) train that can achieve a top speed of 160 kilometers per hour is expected to roll off the production line in China in the middle of this year.

The maglev train is currently in the pilot manufacturing and assembly phase, Zhou Qinghe, president of CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd. and deputy to the National People's Congress (NPC), said on Saturday.

The new train will achieve a substantial speed increase, given the worldwide top speed for this kind of maglev vehicles is currently 100 km/h.

It will also have a 30 percent increase in transport capacity compared with China's first medium-low-speed maglev rail line, operated in May 2016 in Changsha, capital city in central China's Hunan Province.
