Hyperloop One has always seemed to be the only company making tangible progress in building Elon Musk’s futuristic transportation concept. However, there are a bunch of other companies who have entered the game. Chief amongst Hyperloop One’s competitors right now is Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), which had last year released some pictures of where its efforts stand.
Now, HTT seems ready to start its own test track, which will be built in two different phases. The company is reportedly making a closed 320-meter system that will begin from this year. The company is also making a one kilometer long full-scale hyperloop system which is expected to be completed in 2019. The company made these announcements alongside the fact that it now has an R&D center in France.
There’s also a video and a bunch of images for HTT’s under construction track. It marks the first time that the company has shown that it’s quite close to Hyperloop One, which recently made some big announcements pertaining to partnerships and countries recently.
