Hyundai has partnered with Uberem to create a flying taxi. The car is part of a vision of cities of the future.
A car from Hyundai uses the capabilities of vertical take-off and landing, as well as electric motors to drive the entire structure. A specially designed taxi should allow carrying passengers and additional cargo. The concept was designed so that the module was as flexible and customizable as possible.
Uber and Hyundai draw attention to the fact that the initially flying car must be manned by humans, and later will be able to work in a fully autonomous mode. Everything will work as part of Uber Elevate – a service that allows passengers to move over cities.
Uber claims it plans to launch its flying taxis in early 2023.
