Construction of World’s First Full Scale Hyperloop Capsule Begins

Apr 03, 2017

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) has begun construction of the world’s first full-scale Passenger Hyperloop™ Capsule. HTT is one of a handful of startups that have been working toward developing the concept – a mode of passenger and freight transportation capable of propelling a pod-shaped vehicle through a vacuum-like tube.

SpaceX, the company that conceived the idea in 2012, describes the concept as the “fifth mode of transportation.”

Construction is underway for delivery of the world’s first full-scale passenger hyperloop capsule. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is one of a few start-ups that have been working on hyperloops. Delivery and the official reveal is anticipated in early 2018.
