China ‘in’ the hyperloop

China has enlisted the help of a US company to build a hyperloop in the mountainous southwest region.

Hyperloop transportation technologies (California, USA) in partnership with a company controlled by the government of Tongren, Guizhou, will build a test track no longer than 10 kilometers in length. The expansion of the track will depend on the test results.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, or HTT, is one of several companies formed to develop hyperloop systems since billionaire Elon Musk in 2013 released a manifesto detailing his idea for moving people at superfast speeds through a tube.

Besides this project, HTT has also signed a contract for a Hyperloop route in Abu Dhabi and other countries. (I assume it is time to invest in this company!)
