East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) revealed a hydrogen-powered test train on Friday, equipped with an advanced fuel cell and battery system.

The first such test train in Japan has been named HYBARI, which stands for Hydrogen-Hybrid Advanced Rail Vehicle for Innovation. JR East will conduct test runs for the two-car train on the Nanbu Line and a few others from late March, aiming to start commercial use in 2030.
