New subway cars designed and manufactured by a Chinese company are undergoing tests and will be ready to transport passengers in Boston by the end of 2018, local officials said on Tuesday.

A set of four cars made an appearance on the test track at Wellington Yard in Medford, a residential and industrial suburb of Boston, when Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker took a ride on the train while Stephanie Pollack, secretary of the Massachusetts Transportation Department, introduced the features of the vehicles.
