Automakers are starting the design of their future flying cars projects, we have seen how such an important companies like Suzuki or Hyundai are designing their flying car. The last in showing their flying car project has been Volkswagen, this flying car has been called V.MO. It has to be said that the German automaker is doing this new project in China, because the automakers think that in China are more deals for those flying cars.
This eVTOL has been created by Volkswagen Group China, and its design began two years and a half ago. Now, they have fabricated the first prototype and the first flying tests are starting this year.
The Flying Tiger, as it has been named too, is an aircraft that has 11.2 meters length and 10.6 meters wingspan, it is equipped with eight rotors and two engines for the flight. Its cabin can accommodate four passengers and their luggage, and has an autonomy of 200 kilometres, and it is only propelled by electric engines, so the propulsion is so clean.
The company is developing this flying car project in China because is expected that in this country the market of the flying taxis or drones is developing faster than in the rest of the world. The automaker will spend the 2023 developing the V.MO and want to show the people a new better version of their flying car at the end of 2023, then, maybe Volkswagen is presenting a new schedule of when they want to be on service.
The Chinese cities are the principal to invest on this type of mobility, but the next are Europe and America, so the development of this flying car will not only be for China and Asia, they are staring there, but the next step is the rest of the world, so we can say that the mobility is changing.
