The design consideration of the superhigh speed HTS Maglev vehicle system of 1000 m test line is presented on the basis of the experiment results of HTS Maglev vehicle in the years before last. The gross weight of NdFeB of test line guideway is 6750 kg. The low temperature rectangle-shape liquid nitrogen vessel on board has high mechanical strength at 77 K of the temperature. The vessel has 5 mm of bottom thickness and 12 hours of continuous working time. There are two seats in the HTS Maglev vehicle. The total load of the Maglev vehicle is 500 kg including 150 kg of weight of two passengers in the weight. The vehicle body is the quasiellipsoidal shape, and the outside outline size of the vehicle with shell is about 2.3 m of length 0.95 m of height, and 1.2 m of width. The vehicle is driven by a linear motor which is controlled by a ground controlling system. Drive acceleration is 5 g (about 49 m/s2), and the acceleration section length is 300 m. The maximum speed of the vehicle is over 600 km/h when there is no onboard man, and the manned speed is still up to 100 km/h.
