  • Tesla and The Boring Company to plan electric minibus

    Tesla and The Boring Company to plan electric minibusTesla and The Boring Company from Elon Musk are apparently working on an electric minibus that can accommodate twelve passengers and their luggage. This was revealed by an official from San Bernardino County in connection with a tunnel project planned there.

    For a long time we had no news from Musk's The Boring Company, which has been involved in the development of an underground high-speed transport system for electric vehicles since 2017. The last time it was said at the end of 2018 was that test drives will be completed in a 1.8 kilometer long test tube in Los Angeles. An interview with Curt Hagman, the county council chairman, in the US daily The Mercury News is making people sit up and take notice. According to this, The Boring Company could build an underground feeder route to Ontario International Airport and develop said new e-minibus for transportation.

    San Bernardino County stretches over 52,000 square kilometers from the outskirts of Los Angeles to the Nevada border. The Boring Company is said to have submitted a proposal for the 4.5-kilometer connection between Ontario Airport and the city of Rancho Cucamonga to the north. It states that the e-buses can move through the tunnel at speeds of up to 204 km / h and cover the route in one and a half to two minutes.

    The board of directors of the San Bernardino County Transport Authority is said to have supported the proposal and would now like to have the concept put into concrete terms. However, it is still unclear whether the plans will actually be implemented, since the project is in a very early planning phase.
