WILL ELECTRIC CARS WILL BECOME YESTERDAY’S NEWS
Technology never stands still for long and, as anyone who’s been paying attention to the automotive industry over the past few years will know, electric cars are very much the future. But what’s next?
One area that is currently being explored is the possibility of flying cars. That’s right, flying cars! While it may sound like something straight out of The Jetsons, there are a number of companies working on this incredible technology and it may not be as far-fetched as you might think.
Here’s a headline from a recently published article from Car and Driver
HYUNDAI SUBSIDIARY UNVEILS FLYING CAR CONCEPT THAT COULD FLY U.S. SKIES BY 2028
“Hyundai is also investing heavily in the nascent industry, launching a U.S.-based subsidiary called Supernal last November to focus on the so-called “Advanced Air Mobility market.” Now, Supernal has unveiled its eVTOL Vehicle Cabin concept at the Farnborough International Airshow in England, showing what the passenger compartment inside its upcoming intra-city air shuttle could look like.”
DON’T COUNT ON GETTING FREQUENT FLIER MILES JUST YET
In addition to the technical hurdles that need to be overcome, there are also a number of regulatory issues that need to be sorted out before flying cars become a reality. Just like most industries, I’m sure that traditional airlines are not going to be too thrilled about the idea of having competition from flying cars.
And then there’s the question whether or not people are actually going to want to fly in a car. I have to admit that the idea of getting stuck in traffic on the freeway is not all that appealing, but then again, neither is being crammed into a metal tube with a bunch of strangers for hours on end.
Flying cars would obviously have a lot of advantages over traditional ground-based vehicles. For one, they would be able to avoid traffic jams and get from A to B much quicker. They would also be able to park in a lot less space and, perhaps most importantly, they would be a lot of fun!
