Hyundai Rotem, a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Group specializing in railway, defense, and plant systems, is gearing up for the commercial launch of South Korea’s first hydrogen-powered electric tram.

Chinese railway equipment manufacturer CRRC has made a historic move with the unveiling of the world’s first hydrogen-powered metro train. The train, which was unveiled at an event in Shanghai on Chinese Brands Day, has a speed of up to 160 km/h and can travel up to 600 km on a single charge.

Calabria, a region in southern Italy, had ambitious plans to lead the experimentation of new hydrogen trains, as part of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) to restart the economy after Covid-19. However, a recent setback has put a significant dent in those plans, as the tender for the supply of eight hydrogen trains, worth a total of 109.6 million euros, has gone unawarded.
