Watch A Tesla Model X Speed Inside A Boring Company Tunnel
Once again, Elon Musk is doing some cross-promotion with his various companies. In February, Musk strapped a Tesla Roadster into a Falcon Heavy rocket and blasted the vehicle into space. Now, Musk sent a Tesla Model X into one of the tunnels constructed by the Boring Company.
First Boring Company tunnel under LA almost done! Pending final regulatory approvals, we will be offering free rides to the public in a few months. Super huge thanks to everyone that helped with this project. Strong support from public, elected officials & regulators is critical to success. As mentioned in prior posts, once fully operational (demo system rides will be free), the system will always give priority to pods for pedestrians & cyclists for less than the cost of a bus ticket.
In a 2-mile “test tunnel” beneath Los Angeles, this Tesla Model X zooms effortlessly. The Tesla is fitted on special tracks that ferry the electric car underground to avoid traffic. This shows the potential of the underground tunnels could have on private vehicles and shoot them under cities at high speeds. For inter-city trips, the tunnels could transport people at speeds up to 150 mph. An elevator will take cars underground, then they will attach to “electric skates” and speed down the 13.5-foot diameter tunnel.
