Elon Musk takes the ground-breaking ride during the Los Angeles

Tesla founder Elon Musk, on Tuesday invited the public down in its subterranean sea in Los Angeles, which, in time, will help to curb millionbyens gridlock.

Musk had passengers with him in his Tesla Model X, when he testkørte the one and a half kilometer-long tunnel, which is located nine metres under the city's roads, writes the Associated Press.

It was a eureka!-moment for me. I think 'this could be made to work', says Elon Musk subsequent to the press.

Testturen was carried out with a speed of 64 kilometers per hour, and the car was transported on surface, electric 'fejeblade'.

virgin trip was somewhat bumpy, but it is because according to Musk, that gravearbejdet had to do quickly done, so the tunnel was ready for the event.

- It will be smooth as glass. This is just a prototype, he explains.

Elon Musk hopes that the tunnel at a time can carry more cars below ground with up to 241 kilometers per hour.

Elon Musk has always had many irons in the fire. He stands behind the popular Tesla electric car, is developing space shuttles, battery technology and solenergipaneller.

But he has apparently also had the time to dig tunnels.

Musk has for that purpose founded The Drilling Company and bought a big tunnelgravemaskine, who must make the dream of moving the carriage down under the ground.

Musks plan tunneldrevet traffic in the cities, however, should not be confused with the project Hyperloop, when it comes to transporting a fast train through the tunnels.

the Idea with the Hyperloop is that an electric train in a vacuum tube by means of magnet technology in theory will be able to hit a speed of 1200 kilometers per hour.

Musk has already got a commitment that he could go in the process of digging its first Hyperloop-stretch of the us east coast.
