CRRC Changhun and Chengdu Railway Group have developed a hydrogen-powered EMU, based on the Fuxing train, which they say has a maximum speed of 160km/h and a range of up to 600km.

The four-car train has capacity for 1502 passengers and is equipped with GoA 2 features including automatic wake-up, start and stop, and return to depot.

The train is also equipped with a 5G-enabled train to ground communications system, and a condition monitoring system. The interior is fitted with OLED passenger information screens built into the windows, and lighting that adapts to the time of day.

Chinese news site Global Times reports that China plans to have 50,000 hydrogen fuel-cell road vehicles by 2025. Annual hydrogen production from renewable energy is expected to reach 100,000 to 200,000 tonnes, according to the plan jointly released by the National Development and Reform Commission, and the National Energy Administration (NEA) in March 2022.
