Hyperloop is a new form of mass transportation that will set the standard for 21st century travel
by connecting cities in minutes.
It starts with a near-vacuum environment inside a tube
which enables high speeds and low power consumption by nearly eliminating aerodynamic drag.
Inside that tube, battery-powered pods glide at speeds up to 670 miles per hour (1080 KPH),
comfortably, safely, and quietly,
using our proprietary magnetic levitation and propulsion.
After building and testing the world's first hyperloop system,
we are now focused on our commercial product.
The key to our product is guided by a design that is elegant through its simplicity,
future-proof due to its modularity,
and guided by the principles of this century, not the last.
To do this, we've moved levitation, power, and propulsion onto the pod.
Our proprietary levitation engines make hyperloop ten times more efficient
than the world's fastest maglev trains today.
The engines contain arrays of electromagnets, which lift and guide the pod within the track.
Hyperloop also supports on-demand service and high throughput by having pods travel in convoys.
Unlike train cars, pods are not physically connected,
which allows for individual pods to have different destinations.
Just like a car taking an off-ramp, pods can split off, while the rest of the convoy continues on.
The absence of moving parts on the track,
and the advantage of levitation and guidance on top of the pod
allows for high-speed switching and convoying to take place seamlessly.
These next-generation innovations not only enable ultra-fast speeds,
but provide on-demand, direct to destination service
carrying tens of thousands of passengers per hour, per direction
at airplane speeds, with zero direct emissions.
Fast, effortless journeys that expand possibilities.
This is Virgin Hyperloop.
