Elon Musk’s “revolutionary” tunnels near Las Vegas disappointed users



According to various media reports, journalists and ordinary users, who have already managed to ride through the tunnels built under the Las Vegas Convention Center, criticized the latest brainchild of Elon Musk.

The main reason for criticism is that, in fact, this is not the revolution promised by Musk, but the most ordinary tunnel. In one of the test races, a speed record was set, which was 185 km / h. At the time of the official launch, a speed of up to 240 km / h was promised.

However, in fact, people are driven at a speed of 40-60 km / h. Therefore, as a result, cars pass the 1.2 km tunnel 3-4 times longer than previously expected. The Boring Company previously stated that these tunnels turn a 45-minute walk into a two-minute ride.

At maximum capacity, The Boring Company plans to use 62 Tesla Model 3, Model X and Model Y electric vehicles, which will be able to carry 5 people (about 4,400 people per hour) at a higher speed. But now there are fewer cars, three people each sit in them, and the driver is at the wheel. All for the sake of safety at the initial stage.
