The Spanish company Zeleros works hand in hand with governments, mobility operators, investment funds, industries and researchers to develop the global hyperloop network.
A Spanish hyperloop company is proposing the development of a futuristic high-speed rail route connecting Paris to Berlin in just one hour. Zeleros, the Spanish company is specialized in hyperloops, which are essentially pod-and tube-based transportation projects that minimise air resistance and have the potential to enable people to travel long distances much, much quicker than they currently can. Zeleros’ designs feature air-locked, pressurised pods that will be able to carry up to 200 passengers at 1,000 kilometres per hour.
2. 100% electric
Being a futuristic project, Zeleros’ hyperloop is also 100% electric, meaning that, if supplied with renewable energy, they could be remarkably good for the environment.
“At Zeleros, together with our network of international partners, we have done a deep-dive on the different regions of the world together with experts in mobility from every region, highlighting the routes with highest implementation potential, the opportunity in terms of emissions saved, passenger and freight transported, as well as economic impact generated of implementing the different hyperloop corridors,“ reads a Zeleros’ website statement.
3. More routes to come
Paris-Berlin is just the first route that that Zeleros is planning on building. Many more routes are envisaged by the Spanish hyperloop company. The company is planning a global network of tubes that could slash journey times between cities around the world. These include San Francisco-Los Angeles, Paris-Barcelona, Sydney-Melbourne and Boston-Washington DC — which could all be cut down to under an hour.
It’s still not clear when Zeleros’s plans will come into fruition, but when they do, they promise to revolutionize railway mobility and connectivity.
