Chinese flying car company Aeroht is planning to produce a car that can lift off the ground at the touch of a button to avoid traffic jams. The vehicle will have a split, multi-rotor design and will be able to spend 90% of its time on the road like a car, taking off only when needed.
Aeroht hopes to start production of a partially flight-capable car by 2025. Traffic congestion can be a serious problem in cities, and the idea of a car that simply lifts itself above the congestion and continues on its way is certainly appealing.
Reduced flight capabilities are another benefit: while an actual flying car can cost up to a million dollars, Aeroht’s vehicle will be available for as little as $140,000.
