The Japanese automaker plans to join forces with the American company Joby Aviation, specializing in the design and manufacture of flying vehicles.

Toyota is going to actively develop technology for the production of flying taxis. For this, a corporation from Japan is investing $ 394 million in a promising US company Joby Aviation, which is engaged in the design and manufacture of flying transport for taxis. Both companies have one and the same goal – to develop the technology of flying taxis to make this new type of air travel massive. \

 Details about the collaboration of Toyota and Joby Aviation promise to reveal later. To date, it is only known that the parties can begin to create a new prototype of a flying taxi.

 Recall that Joby Aviation already has a S4 model with six rotors and an electric motor. This unit is capable of transporting four passengers at a distance of about 200 kilometers. At the same time, the brand is working on a new 12-rotor taxi.
