Tesla’s biggest Flex at CES 2023
Many companies showcase their products at CES in Las Vegas every year, and 2023 will be no exception. The Las Vegas Loop has a Boring Company tunnel that houses a self-driving Tesla that lets people move around.
Not to be confused with HyperLoop, a high-speed rail system featuring fast trains and pods with vacuum seals and magnetic levitation. Elon Musk is not actively working on this.
The Tesla Loop worked well, with 115,000 people attending the event, over 94,000 of whom used the Tesla Loop. At this major technology event, Tesla has a high exposure rate.
Elon Musk created The Boring Company to combat heartbreaking traffic. Normal traffic is two-dimensional and cannot easily get on and off without bridges. Underground tunnels can use an infinite number of dimensions.
The Las Vegas Convention Loop uses 80 Tesla vehicles, which is 1.5. There is also a dedicated charging station nearby. The average ride time is less than 2 minutes and the average wait time is less than 10 minutes. Average customer rating is 4.9 out of 5.0 stars.

what else happened
A drive that the Tesla Loop makes in 2 minutes would take about 30 minutes in normal traffic. It was agreed to expand to 51 stations covering 29 miles during the trip to Las Vegas, which would connect all major hotels and airports.
This would reduce surface traffic, while access to the underground would require vehicles to be electric. Once Tesla has everything ready for FSD, they will be able to drive themselves underground. I think Tesla might even just add a special code for the Las Vegas Loop.
For anyone who’s never been in a Tesla vehicle, it’s a great first experience, while also experiencing better travel times in what would otherwise be heartbreaking Las Vegas traffic.
There are plenty of other companies at CES, including Volkswagen, Mercedes, Dodge, Faraday, and more. There were many different electric vehicles on display, not just Teslas. The underground experience reaches speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to take a taxi on it, and it only takes 2 minutes. When people wait in line for an hour, the circular wait time is non-existent and fast. This is Tesla marketing genius.
I see the Loop in Las Vegas being replicated in other major cities, which may be the desired autonomous solution, whereas on city streets, things are much more difficult.
