XPENG AEROHT, a subsidiary of the renowned XPENG MOTORS, is pioneering the advancement of aerial mobility with its innovative flying cars, marking a significant leap in the evolution of transportation.

The Land Aircraft Carrier: Redefining Travel

One of XPENG AEROHT’s most striking innovations is the ‘Land Aircraft Carrier’, a modular flying car that seamlessly blends terrestrial and aerial travel. Designed for both personal and public service use, such as emergency rescue operations, this vehicle exemplifies versatility and innovation. The ground module of this car can comfortably accommodate 4-5 passengers and is equipped with an extended-range electric powertrain, capable of multiple recharges for the air module.

The unique three-axle, six-wheel configuration endows it with a robust 6×6 all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering, enhancing its on-road capability.

The air module is no less impressive, featuring a fully electric, piloted aircraft capable of vertical takeoff and low-altitude flight. It’s equipped with an electric propulsion system that adheres to stringent single-point failure safety requirements.

This module offers both manual and automatic driving modes, making it accessible to a broader range of users. The 270° panoramic cockpit in the air module provides an expansive field of view, enriching the flying experience.

The eVTOL Flying Supercar: A Fusion of Design and Technology

In addition to the Land Aircraft Carrier, XPENG AEROHT has also introduced the eVTOL flying supercar. This vehicle amalgamates the aesthetics and performance of a supercar with the functionality of a flying car. When in land mode, it presents a striking on-road appearance, with its flying components seamlessly folded. Transitioning to flight mode, the vehicle demonstrates its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, ideal for navigating congested areas and overcoming obstacles for short-distance, low-altitude travel.

Safety Innovations: Enhancing Reliability in the Skies

XPENG AEROHT has also made significant strides in safety, developing a multi-parachute rescue system. This pioneering system, successfully tested at a mere 50 meters altitude, represents a groundbreaking development in ultra-low altitude rescues, deploying parachutes at a much lower altitude than the industry standard of 200+ meters. This enhancement ensures a safer touchdown, potentially filling a crucial gap in global aviation safety.

The Journey Ahead: Mass Production and Accessibility

With these developments, XPENG AEROHT is not only reimagining but also reshaping the future of mobility. These flying cars, which have already undergone extensive testing and validation, are on the cusp of entering mass production. The company’s vision extends beyond mere transportation, aspiring to alter the fundamental nature of how we perceive and experience mobility.

As we stand at the threshold of this new era, XPENG AEROHT invites everyone to be part of this exciting journey. The future of transportation is not just about driving on roads but soaring through the skies, and XPENG AEROHT is leading the way in making this bold vision a tangible reality​​​​​​​​.
