Geely will prepare the answer to Elon Musk (and it is not the car)


The Chinese car maker has signed the agreement with China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp (CASIC) on joint development of "supersonic" trains in the country.

the Strategic agreement is aimed at combination of two technologies: magnetic levitation and vacuum pipes. As approves CASIC, in similar transport network of the train I will be able to gather speed to 1000 km/h, and in the long term technologies can step further away and will allow to disperse trains to 4000 km/h! But it in the future.

So far will only unite the companies effort in the field of scientific developments. "The technologies developed within realization of supersonic trains will help Geely Holding to advance new vehicles", - it is said in the statement of corporation. we Will note

that the offered system is very similar to the network of high-speed Hyperloop tunnels which is under construction in the USA. It is the project of the vacuum train moving in completely closed pipe. According to the concept of the train take place in special pipes with low pressure. Trains have to move in space by means of the principle of a magnetic pillow thanks to what, the maximum speed can be up to 250 miles per hour (402 km/h).

is engaged in Realization of one of such projects Elon Musk's company. As envisioned, underground with a speed under 200 km/h special platforms (on electrodraft) will carry cars. Will go down under the earth of the car by means of special platforms. Network of similar tunnels, authors of the project consider, can save the cities from traffic jams.
