Facts About India's Hyperloop Project


We know that the Indian government is responsible for moving goods and people efficiently from one place to another. Whether it is e-highways, Hydrogen-fueled trains, buses, or ships, our official agencies are attempting a very pragmatic approach and have also retained many early investment options. In this article, we will discuss the facts about India's Hyperloop Project


It is a type of a high- speed train running in a vacuum in a Tube, and this technology is proposed by super-talented Elon Musk. It is like a system of fast-moving vehicles or pods that can travel around 700-800 kilometers per hour. It can also connect city to city from a few kilometers to around a few hundred kilometers.  The best thing about it is that it can be moved in convoys carrying goods and passengers. This project will also help in transiting two cities in just 30 minutes which usually takes 5 hours by road.  This project was also renamed as Virgin Hyperloop in 2017 after the investor of Virgin CEO Richard Branson came on Board. According to reports this company has founded a very potential market in India and has also signed bilateral agreements with many agencies in the years 2017 and 2020. 

In 2020, the test rides with the passengers started and its modest speed was around 172 kms. After that in March, it was announced that the company will now tweak its system to carry the cargo alone and will not work on the Human Transportation System.  The global supply chain issues and the COVID were the reasons given by the company for changing direction. 
Around 70-80 students of the IIT madras have housed the Avishkaar Hyperloop Project and it has been working on testing the prototype Hyperloop vehicle. And later in 2021 their team also competed in the European Hyperloop Contest and won the title of the Most Scalable Pod Design.
