Briefly, there isn’t a current Hyperloop between Los Angeles and San Francisco and there has not been any actual progress on the venture, apart from a mile-long tunnel from the Boring Firm that some Teslas would lazily glide via. The tunnel itself was positioned alongside Northrup Avenue in Hawthorne, California, with one other in Las Vegas. That was about so far as any Elon-backed Hyperloop venture got here. That tunnel has been changed into a car parking zone for SpaceX workers. In accordance with a report from Bloomberg in November of final yr, the venture has been shelved for now. And given Elon Musk’s propensity to make lofty claims with a doubtful observe file. it should probably keep in improvement purgatory for fairly someday as a substitute of being outright canceled.
Nevertheless, SlashGear has lined different tasks bearing the Hyperloop moniker up to now. However these tasks have additionally not seen the sunshine of day other than idea sketches and early rounds of funding. Proper now, in 2023, there isn’t a Hyperloop or Hyperloop-like transportation system zipping alongside the rails of America at excessive speeds.
In April of final yr, Elon tweeted that his Boring Firm will construct Hyperloop “in coming years.” Granted, this was mere months earlier than Musk purchased Twitter, and anybody who has spent even a modicum of time on-line is aware of that Musk has been “distracted” as of late, to place it calmly.
