Max. speed: 220 km/h

The first Shinkansen train debuted for the Tokaido Shinkansen Nozomi to further increase the speed of the Shinkansen line. By reducing the weight of the car body and improving its aerodynamic characteristics, a maximum speed of 270 km/h was achieved. This reduced the time between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka from nearly 3 hours to 2 hours and 30 minutes.
