Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Is Officially Constructing Its Test Track
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has been kind of M.I.A. for around a year now, ever since the California company announced it was building the world’s first full-scale, passenger-ready hyperloop.
It took a while but it now appears HyperloopTT’s vision is becoming a reality.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies not only revealed it was currently constructing a kilometer-long test track near its R&D center in France, the company released an accompanying video to quell any potential speculation that the news was merely another publicity stunt.
The test track will be constructed in two phases, a closed 320-meter system that will be operational this year, and a 1-kilometer-long full-scale system, elevated by pylons scheduled to be completed next year.
At the moment, a full-scale passenger capsule is expected to be completed this summer.
A finished test track from Hyperloop Transportation Technologies would mark the third hyperloop test track in the world, and make history by being the fist ever in Europe.
