Elon Musk's infrastructure and construction firm has postponed the much-anticipated launch of its first under in the US.

"product launch on Dec 18. More than a opening. Will include modded but fully road legal autonomous cars & ground to tunnel car elevators," Musk tweeted on Thursday.

The company was earlier slated to launch the tunnel on December 10 and reportedly said they would offer the first public test ride with the electric system inside the tunnel.

According to the Electrek, the company says it expects its first full system demonstration will be a short new tunnel and "loop" to get to in in four minutes.

Musk, however, said the launch has been delayed by a week but it will also include a "fully road legal autonomous cars", the report added.

Earlier in October, Musk had announced that was "almost done" with its maiden test tunnel and they would open the project to the public around December 10.

According to Musk, the company is building a watchtower at the exit of the tunnel with bricks made from dirt dug out of the tunnel.
