Delhi-Mumbai Travel Time Can Come Down To 82 Minutes With This New Technology Ten Times Faster Than Rail

For the first time, Virgin Hyperloop has created history by successfully testing human travel in a hyperloop pod. The test took place at the company’s test track in the desert outside Las Vegas, Nevada. During the trial, the speed at which the hyperloop pod travelled was nearly 160 km per hour. And very obviously, the first two passengers were Virgin Hyperloop’s CTO Josh Giegel and director of passenger experience, Sara Luchian.

The Distance Between Mumbai & Delhi Can Be Covered In 1 Hour & 22 Minutes

Hyperloop systems can propel at speeds of over 1000 km/h which is more than ten times faster than traditional rail. This speed can reduce travel times dramatically.  The route estimator on Hyperloop’s website states that the distance from Delhi to Mumbai, which is around 1153 km, can be covered in 1 hour and 22 minutes.

Virgin Hyperloop Aims To Travel At  1,223km Per Hour

However, the goal is to make humans travel at the speed of 1,223 km per hour through these airless tubes. The Virgin Hyperloop team has been working to turn this ground-breaking technology into reality since the past few years. Air New Zealand Offers ‘Mystery Breaks’ To Unknown Destinations To Lure Travelers Back.

Virgin Hyperloop Is A Safe Travel Environment

If you are still confused about what is a hyperloop, it is a high-speed transport mode for the movement of hundreds of people and goods in floating pods through tubes or tunnels. And if you are wondering if the hyperloop is a safe way to travel, the successful testing proves that it is. Virgin Hyperloop proved that it could safely put a person in a pod in a vacuum environment.

The Pod Aims To Carry 28 Passengers

The first passengers made their voyage on the newly-unveiled two-seater XP-2 vehicle custom-built with occupant safety and comfort. While the production vehicle will be larger and carry up to 28 passengers, the two-seater XP-2 vehicle was built just for the purpose of testing and demonstration. The Hyperloop System Is One Step Closer To Reality

Virgin hyperloop was founded in 2014 to make Elon Musk’s vision of a futuristic transportation system a reality.
