Taking a high-speed bullet train has become one of the major transportation choices for Chinese people and foreigners. Recently, China has launched a new series of safer, faster, wider, and more comfortable high-speed trains, "Fuxing", which means "revival" or "rejuvenation" in Mandarin. The new model can operate at 400km/h, shortening the 12-hour journey to five hours and 45 minutes from Shanghai to Beijing. And the price remains the same for the existing high-speed routes.
The "Fuxing" train has been designed and manufactured in China. The new train is about 4.05 meters high - the same as the existing high-speed train-but it can save 17% energy consumption, which is greener than China’s other bullet trains.

Besides, each train has a powerful safety monitoring system with over 2,500 sensors - 500 more than its predecessors – constantly checking its performance, indoor temperature, and automatically slowing down or braking the train in emergencies. When the train runs in abnormal conditions, it can automatically give an alarm. With the remote-date-transmission system, a control center is also set to monitor the running of the train in real-time.
In addition to larger passenger space, the "Fuxing" bullet train provides some other passenger-friendly services. First, the train is covered with Wi-Fi and you can use it all along the journey for free. Second, previously the phone chargers were displaced below the seats and passengers had to stoop to charge their devices, now they are located near the armrests. Third, there's a lighting-control system on the train with various modes, from cold light to warm light, strong light to weak light, you can monitor it based on your own needs.
Up to now, only two "Fuxing" trains have been used on the Beijing-Shanghai line. According to the China Railway Corp, it is expected to see more of the new models in the next few months, including two more trains operating from July 1st.
