Compare to earlier render


I think it is for metro/subway purposes.

I agree, it is my favorite, too So far, it is for test purposes only and as far as I know there are no plans for it to run with passengers anytime soon.

It's not designed for actual operation, but aims to break the 2007 French speed record.

CRH6 commuter rail EMU rolling out. The beginning of the end of Type 25 passenger cars.

Bombardier Transportation's headquarter is in Berlin. It's the Aerospace division that is headquartered in Canada.

If it's possible for a train to look adorable, the CRH6 has certainly done it.
I just wish they'd stuck with the green concept colour scheme, it looks good, and would differentiate it from the truly high-speed trains.

I believe those pictures were taken during its cold (non-powered) rolling tests (冷滑试验)so the train needs to be pulled by another locomotive.

I agree completely, the blue scheme should be reserved for true high speed trains while green scheme used for lower speed EMUs. The problem is that in China the world EMU (动车)is currently used to describe high speed trains 250km/h or lower. That's why the 160km/h CRH6 is a "CRH" in the first place, they'd better also bring out the 200km/h version as rumored.

Hopefully that train will be the sole basis for future generations of high-speed trains, equipped with world-first technologies and safety features.

If I had to guess, I'd say probably Shanghai Metro Line 22 will probably use it.

A CRH labelled train on a metro line?

It's already labeled Harmony so it's a National Railway train, it can be used on any electrified lines, my guess would be replacing remaining non-CRH passenger services around Yangtze and Zhujiang River Delta.
