Watch the Hyperloop as it was successfully tested for the first time at 192 mph



On July 29, 2017, Hyperloop One completed Phase 2 of testing, travelling nearly the full distance of the 500-metre DevLoop track in the Nevada desert.

The Hyperloop One XP-1, the company’s first-generation pod, accelerated for 300 meters and glided above the track using magnetic levitation before braking and coming to a gradual stop.

“This is the beginning, and the dawn of a new era of transportation,” said Shervin Pishevar, Executive Chairman and Co-founder of Hyperloop One.

“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 One, you hear the sound of the future.”
