Light train system

BYD, China’s leading new-energy vehicle maker, unveiled its first light train yesterday, a low-cost overground train system suitable for hundreds of medium and small cities.

The train system, “Yungui,” or Cloud Rail, costs a fifth of a regular Metro line and cuts the construction time by two-thirds, said BYD Chairman Wang Chuanfu.

He said Yungui is tailor-made for smaller cities or tourist and commercial zones of big cities where a fully developed subway system is not viable.
