The flying car concept overlaps considerably with the concept of small vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft capable of transporting 4-5 passengers over short distances. But Aeroht’s vision is not a flying taxi, but a car that can fly on demand while spending most of its time on the road. More than just a concept, the prototype vehicle has already given him two public demonstration flights.
What kind of car is a flying car?
last month, interesting engineering reported that Aeroht’s flying car, developed in collaboration with Chinese automaker Xpeng, is equipped with a new distributed multi-rotor configuration, reducing its design complexity.
Aeroht isn’t the only company in the world to come up with this concept. While most flying car concepts involve VTOLs that can only take off and land using roads, Aeroht’s prototype spends 90% of its time on the road, with only a few glimpses in the air when you need it most. Intended to pass the time.
Reduced flight ability provides an additional advantage. While eVTOL is expected to cost over $1 million, the Aeroht flying car could be available for just $140,000 and could start production as early as 2025.
