The Korean brand will bring a prototype of a flying car to the January Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The international exhibition CES annually gathers under one roof the most promising and bold developments in various fields that can enter a person’s life in the very near future. So, Hyundai is going to show the project of the future transport system at the January Exhibition in Las Vegas. Its main part is a prototype of a flying car, which in the brand itself is referred to as a “personal air vehicle”. We will learn how the innovative prototype will look from the image published by the brand.

 Before us is a compact convertiplane. This is an aircraft with rotary screw motors, which, when taking off and landing vertically, act as a lifting force, and in horizontal flight, as a pulling force.

Recall that the Korean automaker spoke about the creation of a special unit entrusted with the development of urban air transport in early autumn. The post of executive vice president of the new division tried on Shin Zhevon. For about 30 years, this specialist was engaged in aviation research at NASA. In general, Hyundai sees good prospects in the city air taxi service. The new transport system will help unload the road network in major cities around the world.
