Ready for high speed travel throughout the UK and Europe
50 years since the birth of the Japanese Shinkansen rail network, Hitachi has begun the development of the next generation of Very High Speed trains for the European market place.
The British bullet train
This exciting development is in the early stages of concept design and is aimed at introducing passengers across Europe to the world famous Shinkansen bullet train.
We have a rich heritage of achievement, technical expertise and untiring research and development in this field and are fully committed to solutions that get passengers to their destination in the fastest time possible and at the most exacting levels of comfort.
With this new development, Hitachi will build upon the experience and knowledge gained from over 50 years’ experience of providing the Japanese Shinkansen, bringing the most iconic and punctual rolling stock product in the world to passengers in Europe.
