China has unveiled the fastest train in the world, called ‘He Xie,' which has a maximum speed of 236 mph.
China will purchase at least 100 of the high-speed trains, which are manufactured by Changchun Railway Vehicles Co.
He Xie--also known as 380A--will hit tracks in 2011 on a a new Beijing-to-Shanghai track. The track is currently under construction, but according to EcoGeek, He Xie will be able to make this trip in less than four hours.
