Hyperloop One released this footage on August 2, 2017 of its XP-1 pod being tested in the company's dev-loop tube at its facility in the Nevada desert. The company also announced the pod reached a speed of 192 miles per hour and traveled 1,433 feet.

Hyperloop One's passenger test pod takes its first ride | Engadget Today

The maiden test voyage reached speeds of 192 mph.



Just weeks after Hyperloop One demonstrated a working, albeit slow, version of its levitating sled, the company has made another leap forward. This time around, the startup has successfully tested its XP-1 passenger pod, reaching speeds of up to 192 mph and levitating off the track as it accelerated.

XP-1 traveled for just over 300 meters before the brakes kicked in and it rolled to a gradual stop, hitting a top speed of 192 mph. That speed puts Hyperloop One's system a little bit ahead of Category 1 high-speed rail, which has a maximum running speed of 155mph, although it's not yet faster than Japan's bullet train.

Then again, Hyperloop One's plan is to push its pods at speeds closer to 750 mph, but that's clearly going to be tough to test in a tube that's just 500 meters long. But the milestones, slow and steady, are being met, and it's clearly a demonstration of the company's strength that it is developing its prototypes for real.

Hyperloop One Releases Animation of XP-1 Pod Traveling Through Tube | Inverse

Subscribe to Inverse!


This animation, released by Hyperloop One on August 2, in conjunction with the news that its prototype pod, named the XP-1, had reached speeds of 192 mph, imagines a full-scale tube connecting cities through which the hyperloop -- first dreamed up by Elon Musk and revealed in a 2013 white paper -- will travel. Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles-based start-up, appears to be the furthest ahead on making the technology, which relies on electrified motors and magnetic levitation to propel a pod through a depressurized tube, a reality. Musk imagined the pod could travel up to 700 mph.

“This is the beginning, and the dawn of a new era of transportation,” said Shervin Pishevar, Executive Chairman and Co-founder of Hyperloop One said in a statement released on August 2. “We’ve reached historic speeds of 310 km an hour, and we’re excited to finally show the world the XP-1 going into the Hyperloop One tube. When you hear the sound of the Hyperloop, you hear the sound of the future.”

Hyperloop One first test (close-up & slow motion)

Hyperloop One, formerly known as Hyperloop Technologies, tested for the first time its novel transportation system prototype in Nevada, on 11 May 2016. The motorized sled will eventually reach 563 km/h, once the test track is completed, and will someday propel a pod through an actual hyperloop tube.

Virgin Hyperloop One Just Broke Its Speed Record

Virgin Hyperloop One set a test speed record of nearly 240 miles per hour during its third phase of testing at its site in Nevada. The company also tested a new airlock which helped transition test pods between atmospheric and vacuum conditions during a test campaign which was completed on December 15, 2017.

The tests were conducted in a tube depressurized down to the equivalent air pressure experienced at 200,000 feet above sea level.

A Virgin Hyperloop One pod quickly lifts above the track using magnetic levitation and glides at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag.

Elon Musk’s Hyperloop One XP-1 Races Through First Test At 192mph

Elon Musk's Hyperloop One successfully tested its XP-1 passenger pod, reaching speeds of up to 192 mph, while levitating off the track.

The startup's goal is for the XP-1 to travel closer to 750 mph, but given the test track was 500 meters long and the test ride wrapped after 300 meters, we'll cut them some slack for now. It is still faster than any current Category 1 high-speed rails.

Musk, its founder, says he’s received verbal approval from the government to build a tunnel from New York to Washington, D.C., with the goal of reducing travel time to 29 minutes between the two cities. While the pod hasn't yet reached supersonic speeds, Musk and his team reached another major milestone.
