Despite the number it more resembles the CRH5 AKA New Pendolino.

Those are high capacity intercity commuter trains, designed for standing passengers and frequent stops. CSR has the CRH6 now and CNR must be eager to come up with a competing product, hence this one.

Not really, it's just China's HSR lines are still way, way under used. Most of the lines are not running at nearly the frequency of the Japanese.
Curious, and OT, but in that case, I wonder how many 700 and N700 sets JR central has, in order to have that 6 min departure interval on the Tokaido line

Why do they make a completely different train with the same designation?

Yes, and still very confusing. This new CRH3A has nothing to do with the old CRH3, or does it?

This Chinese trainset numbering system (if you can call it a 'system' any way) is crazy :-)

I'm pretty sure it's the commuter version of CRH5 instead of CRH3, they are both CNR product anyway.

I agree, it contains a lot of illogicalities. For instance, CRH1B and CRH2B are 16-car sets, so you would expect CRH380B to be one too. However, the naming convention was changed and in newer series 16-car sets are denoted with the letter L. The new Alstom-derivative is named CRH3A, even though the CRH5 family already contains a New Pendolino variant.

Code:
CRH1 family
-----------

Bombardier Regina
CRH1A     220-250 km/h   8 cars        2007
CRH1B     250 km/h       16 cars       2009

Bombardier Zefiro
CRH1E     250 km/h       16 cars, sl.   2009
CRH380D   380 km/h       8 cars        2013?
CRH380DL  380 km/h       16 cars       -

CRH2 family
-----------

Shinkansen
CRH2A     250 km/h       8 cars        2007
CRH2B     250 km/h       16 cars       2008
CRH2E     250 km/h       16 cars, sl.  2008

Original
CRH2C     300-350 km/h   8 cars        2008
CRH380A   380 km/h       8 cars        2010

This is the Beijing EMU Branch, one of the largest CRH maintenance yard in northern China, located near Beijing.
