The Propulsion Open Air Test (POAT) saw electromagnets propel a vehicle at 115 mph (185 km/h) along a 1,500-ft (457-m) long test track.
High energy efficiency coupled with electric propulsion yield an energy elegant, carbon free mode of transportation. And to enable on-demand transport, Hyperloop pods are much smaller than most planes and trains and are designed to depart as often as every 10 seconds.
A fully operational hyperloop equipped with Maglev technology, would transfer passengers and cargo in pods, through a spacial made tube at speeds of up to 1,207 kph (750 mph).
