Japan’s Skydrive is all set to make the first flying car with the collaboration of Suzuki. Things are already at the documentation level. They will start production by 2025 hopefully.
Japan is the most technically advanced country in the world. They invented amazing and technically advanced products and machines. Recently they announce that they are thinking to create the first flying car in the country. Oldest country Suzuki with the collaboration of Skydrive is developing a map that is feasible to create a flying car. Suzuki does not sell its products in the USA but they have almost 50 percent share in the international market. Their products and cars are worldwide famous especially in India for their sustainability and reliability.
The company has worked on the eVTOL previously and has launched the world’s smallest one-seater electromotive vehicle with aviation technology, measuring only 4 x 4 x 2 meters. The vehicle could only sustain a ten-minute flight, with a speed of 30 mph (50 kph). This experience enabled the company to enhance the development of a flying car that could be certified to operate as an air taxi.
