The future depicted in TV shows isn’t as fictitious as we thought.
I guess we will be saying goodbye to land traffic by next year because Suzuki is joining forces with SkyDrive to produce flying cars by 2024.
SkyDrive is a Japanese start-up that aims to provide mobility solutions. They produce flying cars with zero emissions and provide efficient transportation to commuters. Moreover, SkyDrive will make a new company to assemble flying vehicles. The company will use Suzuki’s plant, which is located in the Shizuoka Prefecture.
The goal is to be able to use the cars at the 2025 World Exposition in Osaka. This joint venture was made possible because of SkyDrive’s plans to redesign their flying cars to fit three people. They will also be increasing the flight range to 15 kilometers.
Advantages of Flying Cars
A Flying Car is a thing of the future. What are the advantages of flying cars? Let’s go through them one by one. These advantages are according to SkyDrive.
- Flying cars are quiet and have zero emissions.
- No runway is needed when landing and taking off because of its low infrastructure and minimal space requirement.
- Flying cars offer direct flights, resulting in highly efficient transportation. There are no traffic signals or congestion.
- You can input your destination, and the flying car will take you there.
Flying cars might just be the solution to traffic congestion and carbon emissions. But the main question here is, who can afford it? I guess that is something we will find out soon.
