Two extra cars are added to the train, compared with conventional metro trains, to allow a larger passenger capacity during rush hours, experts with CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Company said.

With a maximum speed of 100 km per hour, the wide-body train can carry up to 3,456 passengers on a single trip.

Trains with the fourth grade automation system are capable of operating automatically, including with obstacle detection and remote control.
