Subway trains built in China have passed a major milestone, having run over six million kilometers in four years without a significant mechanical failure on one of the world's busiest subway lines in Mumbai, India.

The official Weibo account of China's State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission cited local media in India as reporting that the 16 subway trains are carrying some 400,000 passengers each day on Mumbai's subway Line 1.

The trains went into service back in 2014. Built by CRRC in Nanjing, they were the first trains to have been exported to India from China.

Trains manufactured in China are also running on subway lines in other cities across India, such as New Delhi, Noida, and Gurgaon.
