Virgin Hyperloop One

Does anyone care to elaborate about the rear of the pod profile regarding trailing edge aerodynamics?

Do they gain all of that ultra-low aerodynamic drag due mostly to the low pressure inside of the tube?

Their web site says: "With Virgin Hyperloop One, passengers and cargo will be loaded into a pod, and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. The pod quickly lifts above the track using magnetic levitation and glides at airline speeds for long distances due to ultra-low aerodynamic drag."
