The second phase test of Hyperloop One moves the pod at a speed of 310 km/h (192 mph). Startups headquartered in Los Angeles continue to print history in completing the second phase of testing. Hyperloop One's CEO and Co-founder, Shervin Pishevar, said the transportation revolution had begun and the XP-I version made its next debut to continue to carve out the top speed.

The futuristic transport startup established in 2014, Hyperloop One, conducted the first full-scale test in mid-July 2017 as the latest development of the first generation of floating freight 300 meters.

The pods slide over the track using magnetic levitation and reach a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph). The test occurs on the devavan path 500 meters in the nevada desert in the United States.

"This is the beginning, and the dawn of a new era of transportation. We’ve reached historic speeds of 310 km an hour, and we’re excited to finally show the world the XP-1 going into the Hyperloop One tube. When you hear the sound of the Hyperloop One, you hear the sound of the future," said Pishevar.



The Hyperloop One project has a mission of building technology to radically transform transportation in order to dramatically reduce the inter-city transport time around the world. Magnetic levitation pushes pods through low pressure tubes.

"We’ve proven that our technology works, and we’re now ready to enter into discussions with partners, customers and governments around the world about the full commercialization of our Hyperloop technology," said Hyperloop One's CEO Rob Lloyd.

"We’re excited about the prospects and the reception we’ve received from governments around the world to help solve their mass transportation and infrastructure challenges.” said Lloyd.

Capsules containing passengers and cargo are expected to travel at a speed of 1,100 km/h (684 mph). The second phase test exceeds 1,433 feet, 300 m propulsion and 3,151 power. The latest achievement marks a significant development for this project and a step closer to becoming a reality.

"Our team of engineers continues to make history at DevLoop. Only a handful of teams would have attempted something so audacious while far less could have achieved it," said Hyperloop One's President of Engineering and Co-founder of Hyperloop One, Josh Giegel.

"Through tireless preparation, dedication and hard work, we successfully completed Phase 1, proving that Hyperloop One technology works and that Hyperloop is real. Phase 2 was far more difficult as we built upon everything we learned from our initial test and accomplished faster speeds at a farther distance. We’re now one step closer to deploying Hyperloop around the world," said Giegel.
