Tesla can make an electric Source:

Perhaps this van will be through new tunnels.

A few years ago you could find people in the community who have asked, who is Elon Musk and think that Tesla — it's only the name of the famous scientist from the past. The recent success of companies Mask and the ubiquity of its electric cars has led to what is now know about him almost everything, and his bold demeanor once again forced to recall about it. Sometimes it is referred to not because of what he did or said, but because of its potential developments. For example, now has information that he can produce a new form of transportation, namely electric van at the base , which will travel at a speed more than two hundred kilometers per hour. What is it?

New project Tesla

Reportedly, the new 12-seater electric vehicle from Tesla will be part of a larger project approved by the County of San Bernardino, California. For the project voted by a local Agency of transportation, and realize it must be one of the companies Elon musk.

This is a company , which is engaged in drilling tunnels and laying them in the communication, typically the transport destination. In this case it will be a high-speed tunnel, which will connect the city center with the airport.

It is expected that the tunnel will start in Rancho Cucamonga and will pass airport Ontario. Supervisor County of San Bernardino curt Hagman told reporters after the vote that in the beginning it was suggested that in the tunnels drove ordinary cars Tesla, but then added that both companies Mask working on a big van.

Passenger van Tesla

In Addition to space for 12 passengers, it will be possible to place the baggage, and to move a transport with a speed of 127 miles per hour (about 204 kilometers per hour). However, neither Tesla nor Boring Company has not commented on the construction and design of new transport infrastructure.

The new van will be based on the Tesla Model 3. I wonder how will this project be implemented if it is a fairly compact vehicle, and build on its base a full van will not be easy. It's one thing to change the shape of the body on the truck and quite another — build a new car, which should be a much greater load capacity and larger size. One thing is clear for sure — van be Autonomous.

About this van said earlier, but not yet put into operation.

If we talk about the tunnel, its length will be 2.8 miles (4.5 km) and will take place at a depth of 35 feet (10.5 meters). Thanks to the speed of movement, which will be more than 200 kilometers per hour, the airport can be reached in approximately two and a half minutes.

How much is a new tunnel Boring Company

The County Government is confident that the cost of building a tunnel will be approximately $ 60 million. Instead, the project proposes to establish a system of high-speed tram, which was to cost the district approximately 1-1,5 billion dollars. The difference is more than obvious.

If Boring Company to negotiate with the officials and will work on this project, it will be already the third similar achievement of the company. Currently, the company is engaged in the construction of a tunnel connecting all the halls of the Convention center in Las Vegas. Previously, the company was also involved in the project to Chicago international O'hare airport.

a Major airport’'hare in Chicago.

to aspire To Elon Musk

It is Difficult to say that such a construction could be the ultimate goal of such an ambitious businessman like . Most likely, it will be only a starting point in a big way. Agree that 4.5 miles is nothing. This distance, which if necessary can be overcome on foot. I myself once at Munich Airport was forced to go about the same walk when I was late for the plane, and the train stopped at the previous station and it was unclear when he will return. By and large, even with a suitcase, I have not experienced any discomfort, except for haste. This I mean that this distance is quite small. But, as the beginning of something more significant is really a breakthrough.

Honing technology and how to build these tunnels, it is possible to cover a much larger distance. For example, you can build them under the Straits or rivers, and to cross the whole city in order to link major airports, if they are in town for a few. Examples of such cities can serve as new York, Moscow, London and others.

This machine is good in itself, but if she will be reborn in the underground van — will generally be cool!

Just imagine to go from Sheremetyevo to Domodedovo , metro and ride to. Given city traffic, it can take two hours. How much you can save by traveling under the ground in a straight line with a speed of 200 kilometers per hour?

The Distance between the direct distance is 70 kilometers. At the speed it can be overcome in 20 minutes. Even if you throw 5 minutesacceleration and deceleration, and 5 minutes to the overall decline in average speed, you get 30 minutes. For comparison, only the Aeroexpress train from the city centre to Domodedovo international airport is about 45 minutes, not counting the fact that it is less than half way. So consider, what are the prospects it opens for travelers in the future.
