Hyperloop One Hits Record 192mph in Its Latest Test
Elon Musk’s Hyperloop One plans at times felt like a literal pipe dream. Delayed starts, underwhelming low-speed testing and cryptic Instagram posts from Musk didn’t show much of the promoted plans for the future’s most efficient form of travel.
A new video from Hyperloop One finally details the biggest progress to date for the company. In it, a prototype pod whizzes down the 500-meter test tube with a top speed of 192 mph before slowing down and stopping. According to the company, it’s the fastest hyperloop test to date. Fans of the hyperloop project will note that this roughly 200 mph speed is significantly slower than the estimated average speed of 760 mph promoted in the early stages of the project.
