Elon Mask showed underground electric busMarch 12, 2018
The head of Tesla Ilon Mask announced the development of a new unmanned electric bus. The video, which shows the vehicle, the American posted on his Twitter. Electric bus will move through special tunnels under the cities.
The company currently has a company called The Boring Company, which also belongs to the Mask. It is expected that the electric bus will be able to reach speeds of more than 200 km per hour. Driving drones will be on special magnetic rails. According to Mask, within the project it is planned to create thousands of small stations with the size of approximately one parking space. At the first stage, the electric bus will be able to carry only passengers and cyclists.
As for cars, Ilon Mask plans to use special platforms for their transportation. To lower the cars into the tunnel there will be special elevators.
At the end of June last year it became known that The Boring Company began construction of the first section of the high-speed tunnel near Los Angeles using a special drill machine called Godot.
In the future, a new network of tunnels is supposed to be combined with the vacuum system of Hyperloop ultra-high-speed passenger trains, which, theoretically, can travel at speeds up to 1200 km per hour. It is assumed that the project will require at least six billion dollars.
