Volkswagen explores flying cars in China

Major European carmaker said on Tuesday that Volkswagen is conducting a feasibility study for flying cars in China, which is joining a growing number of companies studying potential technologies.

"In addition to autonomous driving, the concept of vertical mobility could be the next step in our future mobility approach, especially from a technical point of view in the Chinese market," the German group said in a statement.

She said, "So we are looking at the concepts and potential partners in a feasibility study to determine the feasibility of producing this method."

In an interview with LinkedIn, Stefan Wallenstein, president of the China carmaker's region, said in an interview with Herbert Dees, CEO of Volkswagen: The company hopes to develop a licensed drone available, and thus provide an opportunity to consider this future engagement in the market.

China is the largest car market in the world, the leader in the Volkswagen market, and a large proportion of Volkswagen sales.

We should not be complacent about our laurels, make better use of broadband, be ambitious, and most importantly, make full use of the powerful innovation capabilities that China provides to the public.

When the news broke, companies from startups to other global automakers were competing to develop self-driving taxis.

In addition to large companies such as Volkswagen and Airbus, groups such as Joby from the USA, Lilium from Germany and Volocopter from Germany are implementing such plans. Among their supporters are Daimler and Intel.

Lilium announced last November that it will build its first center near Orlando, USA, so that more than 20 million people can live in Florida. The city electric wing aircraft can take off vertically and fly 300 kilometers.
