Also announced was the completion of the 1640-foot-long Hyperloop One test track, located in the desert just outside of Las Vegas. The facility will serve as the outdoor lab where extensive testing on the company’s proprietary levitation, propulsion, vacuum and control technologies can be carried out. The company believes the first completed Hyperloops should be in cargo service starting in 2020, with the first passenger pods in operation by 2021.
