Hyperloop passenger capsule arrives in Toulouse for testing on a new test track

January 30, 2019 0 By The Tubist

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies representatives informed that its full-scale passenger capsule has arrived at its research center in Toulouse, France, where the company is building a 320-meter long test track.

 

 

Quintero 1 is the name of that Hyperloop capsule constructed in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. It is built using an enigmatic material called “Vibranium” – a “specially made dual-layer smart composite material.” Pod is 105 feet (32 meters) long and weighs around 5 tons.

 

 

HTT says the remaining parts of the tube needed to complete the Toulouse Hyperloop test track will be arriving soon, so the full system can be assembled this year.
