#Video | Tesla Model X with sliding wheels for driving on The tunnel Boring

As expected, December 18, opened the first high-speed tunnel The Boring Company in the city of Horton. Earlier it was reported that it will be free to ride the first passengers, but this did not happen. But Elon Musk has published pictures and videos that show the interior of the tunnel and a new design of the Tesla Model X, allowing it to firmly hold the rails and drive along them. Tweet the entrepreneur has information about other features of the system.

The Tunnel length of 2.3 km and a width of 4.3 meters was dug directly under the headquarters of SpaceX in Hawthorne. Its construction cost the company $ 10 million, including the costs of holding the light, installation of ventilation and security.

Previously it was thought that Tesla cars will travel in the tunnel riding on the platforms installed on the rails. It turned out that electric cars will be moved on rails independently, with retractable wheels — they help the vehicle maintain the trajectory. The cost of such system will be 200-300 dollars.

Such a system can be installed on any electric cars with system of automatic piloting, not just Tesla. Movement speed on rails will be 241 km/h — according to Elon musk, it is the optimal limit. In his opinion, moving at that speed through the underground tunnel in different parts of the city will be like a teleportation.

Video Tesla Model X has not clocked more than 85 km/h at the wheel there was a pilot who have participated in the annual race "Indianapolis 500" on cars with open wheels.

In Addition to the routes for vehicles in the tunnels will be designated for the transport of pedestrians and cyclists. Also inside the deployed Wi-Fi network, apparently, for the comfort of future passengers.
