Curt Hagman, head of the agency, said in an interview after the meeting that the proposal initially called for the use of conventional Tesla electric vehicles in tunnels, but then the two companies proposed a new vehicle with a capacity of 12 passengers and luggage and a speed of up to 127 miles (204 km / h).
