Elon Musk's Boring Company released new pictures of an electric mass transit system concept.
Although the images appeared without description on the company's website this week, the vehicle is reminiscent of one that appeared in a video Musk premiered during his TED talk in Vancouver in late April, included below. (The vehicle can be seen about 46 seconds in.)
In both the video and the photos, it looks like one of the electric skates meant to travel through the tunnels, but topped with a glass-like top. It appears to be holding several people.
Musk had said Tesla might make a bus, or some sort of "high-passenger-density urban transport vehicle," but recently he said a bus might be superfluous if the Tesla presses forward with its idea for an autonomous ride-sharing business.
But these pictures suggest he is still considering the idea.
The subterranean tunnels are Musk's plan to reduce traffic, which he has said is a scourge in major U.S. cities — particularly Los Angeles. Digging tunnels is notoriously expensive, though Musk said his company can dramatically reduce costs with measures such as reducing the tunnel diameter and building boring machines that can tunnel faster than currently available machines. He also has discussed devising a process that allows continuous boring, rather than current methods that require stopping the machine to build tunnel walls.
