Hyperloop has revealed its first full-scale passenger capsule designed to transport riders over at top speeds of 750-MPH. The 105 feet, 5-ton “Quintero One” was unveiled in Spain but will receive additional assembly in Toulouse, France before being tested on its first commercial tracks. The capsule is made of a resilient dual-layer smart composite material with an aerodynamic exterior designed by Priestman Goode.
The prototype was made by technological firm artificial and released on the anniversary of HTT’s fifth anniversary, utilizing the company’s trademarked vibranium dual layer smart composite, which is 10 times stronger than steel and five times light. Although locations for Hyperloop networks have been confirmed in China, Ukraine, and UAE, the company is also proposing for locations like the U.S., Mexico, and Central Europe.
