CHANGCHUN — China’s leading train maker on Feb 5 released its new driverless carbon-fiber monorail train.

CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles said the new generation of its driverless monorail train can endure extreme weather, with temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius.

Partly made of carbon-fiber composite, the new model is 25 percent lighter than a traditional train, which could reduce energy consumption by 22.7 percent.

Also as the world’s leading train-maker, CRRC Changchun has more than 18,000 employees producing more than 8,000 trains each year.
