The Boring Company of Elon Musk has reported the use of Tesla Model S, Model X and Model 3 in their upcoming new ‘Loop.’
With many projects coming closer to reality, the dream of the Boring Business is starting to become clearer.
Musk admitted he started the company “as a joke” before it became really serious and secured some major transport projects.
The aim was always to construct tunnels, but when it comes to the transportation system within the tunnels the Boring Company has changed its strategy a few times.
The Boring Company has now released more details about what it was calling a ‘Loop’ with the Las Vegas conventional center loop on track to be completed in the next few months.
The intention was to use electric vehicles with autonomous capabilities that would allow them to move quickly inside narrow tunnels.
It has already been confirmed that they will use Tesla vehicles for the Las Vegas project, but they have never confirmed which ones or even whether they will be existing Tesla vehicles or whether they are designing a new vehicle particularly for that reason.
The Boring Company has now updated its FAQ section on its website and provided information about the vehicles it plans to use in its ‘Loop’:
“Loop is an all-electric, zero-emissions, high-speed underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported via compatible Autonomous Electric Vehicles (AEVs) at up to 150 miles per hour through Main Artery Tunnels between stations. AEVs are Tesla vehicles (Model S, 3, and X) that operate autonomously within the Loop system.”
The startup has also released several new concept images of three different Boring Company station designs: surface stations, subsurface stations, and subsurface open-air stations.
Considering these concept images and the references to “Model S, 3, and X” are coming just as the company is working to complete the Las Vegas project, it’s likely going to be the system they plan to develop for this project.
The Boring Company expects to complete the project by year end.
