World's first electric-powered trackless train launched in China

Using virtual rail lines on the streets, the trains can travel up to speeds of 70km/h.


I'm not sure how you define a train, but in my book at least, if there's no track it's not a train

and what's a "virtual track"

Indeed! It's got the disadvantages of a train (constrained to a "track") without the advantages of a train (very low rolling resistance for steel wheels on steel track).

Nor is it the first. The trains at the Denver Airport (and probably many other airports) have been trackless electric for over 20 years.
