A new, faster generation of driverless magnetic levitation trains is set to debut in China as early as 2020, according to state media.
But those dreaming of eye-wateringly fast, record-breaking bullet trains will have to sit tight.
These trains are medium-low-speed maglev, though still impressively quick.
Built and developed independently in China by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotives Co. Ltd., they will be the company's third generation of medium-low-speed maglev trains.
The newly developed maglev prototype will run at a speed of 200 kph -- 40 kph faster than the 2.0 version and double the speed of the 1.0 version.
When finished, the trains will be the fastest commercial maglevs developed and built completely by Chinese firms.
