The AutoFlight Prosperity I, which will not be driven by a robot, but whose creators have extensive experience in the field of aircraft, could be ready to take its first paying passengers as early as 2025.
EV startups could play a big role in making flying cars a reality. Flying cars have long been a fantasy of mankind, and Chinese electric car manufacturer XPeng wants to make these dreams a reality.
The 130th China Import and Export Fair (“Canton Fair”) officially kicked off on October 14th in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang was in attendance at the opening ceremony and visited the exhibition booth of EHang Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: EH) (“EHang” or the “Company”), the world’s leading autonomous aerial vehicle (“AAV”) technology platform company. Mr. Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EHang, introduced the Company’s self-developed autonomous air mobility solutions to the Premier, demonstrating its smart, safe, efficient, convenient, and eco-friendly advantages and innovative use cases in various scenarios such as tourism, logistics, firefighting, emergency rescue, and more.
XPeng Huitian, the Chinese division of XPeng Motors, has unveiled a prototype of its new flying car with autonomous capabilities. Dubbed the Voyager X2, the electric vehicle is the company’s fifth generation flying car, which it says takes it one step closer to a more widely available and safe flying car.
The electric device, called X2, can travel for 35 minutes on a single charge. What was just a fiction a decade or two ago is now seen as the future of urban transport. This time it’s not an electric car, but a flying car, which is being developed by many companies at the same time. Some of them have already achieved quite some success.
