India Gets Its 3rd Vande Bharat Express With 160 kmph Speed
PM Modi flagged off the Mumbai-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Express which will run on the Mumbai-Gandhinagar route. It can run at a speed of 0-100 kmph in 52 seconds.
The third Vande Bharat Express in the nation, which would run between the state capitals of Gujarat and Maharashtra, is launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The third Vande Bharat Express in the nation runs between Mumbai and Gandhinagar. The Vande Bharat Express, created as part of the “Make in India” initiative, will link every region of the country, as PM Modi stated during his Independence Day speech last year.
The government intends to have a total of 75 such trains. The Vande Bharat Express is a very high-speed train that can reach a top speed of 160 kph and accelerate to 100 kph from a complete stop in about 52 seconds.
Due to rapid acceleration and deceleration, it may reach high speeds and will cut the travel time by 25% to 45%. For instance, the trip between New Delhi and Varanasi will take eight hours on schedule, which is 40–50% quicker than the quickest train that travels between these two cities.
