Many self-driving cars have been launched in a while. Many people say that a lot of peoples will sit in cars that can automatically drive around on the road. But if we ask Airbus, cars will be self-flying rather than self-driving.
The airplane manufacturer’s CEO, Tom Enders, says that a working prototype of the flying car will be done by the end of 2017. In August 2016 Airbus said that they wanted to make flying taxis, but it’s unclear if these cars will be taxis or normal cars.
They have also said that a lot of the components for the flying vehicles are almost done. They will, of course, need extra powerful motors, batteries etc to make the car fly. These cars will allow more houses to be built in cities because roads for flying cars will not take much place. Airbus will also try to make their vehicles not to make much impact on the environment.
The first flying cars will, of course, be prototypes that are not fully developed. When the technology evolves, this type of cars will be better and more affordable. So just because Airbus will launch their prototype this year, that doesn’t mean that everyone will be able to get them. They will, of course, be very expensive and probably be harder to use because it may not be any good roads in the air for them. Do you believe that a world of flying vehicles will become reality?
