Tesla van is revealed in The Boring Company's new render. Do you think Tesla Van is the next after the Semi?
The Las Vegas Convention Center released a new render of The Boring Company’s Loop transportation system that is currently under construction. The render shows an AEV ‘van’ that features a row of seats and glass windows all around, which will be capable of carrying more passengers in its interior, pictured below. Previously, these pods were designed for 12 passengers that could ride standing up; Musk was recently asked if the pods will have standing room – “No, best to have people seated for safety and speed of travel,” he said. So, the ‘van’ was redesigned to feature seats for 12 passengers, and will also allow them to carry their luggage. City officials said the van could add the Loop system capacity to transport up to 1,200 people per day, or 10 million per year.
