Elon Musk's Hyperloop is sort of outside the realm of InsideEVs. Its inclusion here is due only to Elon Musk's tie with Tesla Motors.
We won't even begin to try explain how the Hyperloop works (follow this PDF link for all the technical details) and why would we when Musk himself explains it for us?
In this exclusive Bloomberg interview, Musk fields general and specific Hyperloop questions.
According to Bloomberg:
"The Hyperloop is here, in its full, theoretical glory. After keeping the public in suspense for about a year, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors and Space Exploration Technologies, has finally revealed some concrete details of what he sees as a new, superfast mode of solar-powered transportation."
So, if you're not yet Hyperlooped out or if you, like us, enjoy listening to Musk field random, unrehearsed questions, then this here interview is for you.
