Submission + - France unveils TGV's successor (

maudefan writes: French engineering giant Alstom unveiled a new super-fast train on Tuesday. The AGV train will travel at speeds up to 360km/h and, just like the TGV, can use standard rail tracks for traveling at lower speeds. Key design change of AGV is that motors are placed under each car which provides more space for the passengers, as there are no separate power cars, and higher energy efficiency.

This is great news as high speed railway combined with nuclear power is the only sensible alternative for transport in 1000 km range that does not release massive amounts of CO2.
