The next milestone for the finalization of the demonstration track in Chengdu was reached: At the beginning of June, the first series-production vehicle of the Transport System Bögl set off for our Chinese partner. Starting in the summer, it will run there on the 3.5 km long track. On the way to its destination, the novel traffic system was first loaded onto trucks at the Max Bögl group’s headquarters in Sengenthal and transported to Munich Airport. From there, the Antonov, one of the world’s largest transport aircraft, took it to Chengdu, over 7,500 km away.
In the next step, the TSB series-production vehicle will be put into operation on the completed demonstration track. The performance of the new system will then be demonstrated there to potential Chinese customers with journeys of up to 160 km/h.
