Chinese high-speed trains to export to Serbia

CHANGCHUN, Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- China's CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd. on Tuesday signed a high-speed train procurement deal with the Serbian transportation authorities, according to the train manufacturer.

The deal marks that Chinese high-speed electric multiple units (EMUs) with a speed reaching 200 km per hour will be exported to Europe for the first time, the company noted.

The EMUs include 20 train cars divided into five sets. These trains will operate at a maximum speed of 200 km per hour on the Hungary-Serbia railway.

Wang Chengtao, with the research center under CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles, said that these high-speed trains are built on a proven and adaptable technological platform that aligns with European standards and Hungary-Serbia railway project needs, promising enhanced passenger experience with intelligence, eco-friendliness, and comfort.

The Hungary-Serbia railway project, scheduled for operation in 2025, is expected to significantly cut travel time between Belgrade and Budapest from the current eight hours to three hours upon the railway's operational launch.
