Japan’s maglev train just set a world record speed of 375 mph (over 600 kph) during a manned test run on April 21. Central Japan Railway plans to launch the service of the magnetically levitated train in 2027, connecting Tokyo and Nagoya, a distance of around 186 miles, in just 40 minutes.
The average speed of the maglev train is to be set around 310 mph once it is operating commercially.
