Updated 2017-10-17 10:02:55 Global Times

The first batch of subway trains produced in China for the US rolled off the production line on Monday, and they will be exported to Boston soon, according to domestic news site thepaper.cn.

The trains, which are designed and produced by CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co, are expected to arrive in the US in December. They will replace 40-year-old local subway trains.

They are also the first batch of subway trains made in line with US standards, but the Chinese manufacturer holds full intellectual property rights.

The trains can run at up to 102 kilometers per hour, and they have an expected service life of 30 years.
