KUALA LUMPUR, July 22 (Bernama) -- TransPod, the startup that is building the world’s leading ultra-high-speed ground transportation system (the TransPod Line), has unveiled the FluxJet, an industry-defining innovation that transforms the way we live, work, and travel.
According to a statement, based on groundbreaking innovations in propulsion and fossil-fuel-free clean energy systems, the FluxJet is a fully electric vehicle that is effectively a hybrid between an aircraft and a train.
“All the hard work over the past few years has led to this milestone moment where talk is becoming a reality. The technology is proven, and we have the confidence of investors, governments, and partners to continue pushing forward to redefine transportation effectively,” said TransPod co-founder and chief executive officer Sebastien Gendron.
Meanwhile, TransPod co-founder and chief technology officer Ryan Janzen said: “The FluxJet is at a nexus of scientific research, industrial development, and massive infrastructure to address passengers' needs and reduce our dependence on fossil-fuel-heavy jets and highways.
“The FluxJet is a first for Canadian innovation and is the next great infrastructure project to be brought worldwide.”
Featuring technological leaps in contactless power transmission and a new field of physics called veillance flux, the FluxJet travels in a protected guideway at over 1,000 km per hour – faster than a jet and three times as fast as a high-speed train.
The FluxJet will operate exclusively on the TransPod Line, a network system with stations in key locations and major cities, featuring high-frequency departures designed to enable fast, affordable, and safe travel.
At TransPod’s unveiling event in Toronto, a scaled-down FluxJet was featured in a live demonstration showing its flight capabilities. The almost one-tonne FluxJet vehicle demonstrated a take-off, travel, and landing procedure within its guideway.
