The first indigenous electric train in Turkey is set to be tested and launched on May 29 this year, nation’s industry and technology minister said.  Visiting a Turkish Wagon Industry (TUVASAS) plant in the northwestern province of Sakarya, Mustafa Varank said the trains will be able to reach speeds of up 160 kilometers per hour.

 

Varank said that he stressed that the trains will be available for public use by September. The next step will be making high-speed trains capable of hitting over 200 km/hr.
