 Chinese trainmaker CRRC announced a new bullet train model that can run in temperatures as low as minus 40 degrees celsius on Tuesday.
The CRH2G bullet train can adapt to extreme cold and high altitudes, said Cheng Jianfeng, a senior engineer at Qingdao Sifang of CRRC.
"The development of CRH2G provides more adaptable trains for China's bullet train networks in deserts and plateaus. The train is expected to be used on the Lanzhou-Xinjiang High-speed Railway by the end of 2015," Cheng said.
The CRH2G train can run up to 250 kilometers per hour.
The train is also designed to resist sand and run in places with altitudes as high as 3,600 meters.
The research and development took about three years, according to the Qingdao Sifang of CRRC.
