The dream of flying cars is approaching reality .. a Korean company: can be expected in 2030


One of the leading car manufacturers said that the dream of flying cars is close to becoming a reality in cities around the world by the end of this decade in 2030, and these cars will help reduce congestion and reduce vehicle emissions.


Michael Cole, chief executive of European operations for one of South Korea's largest automakers, said the company has made some "very important investments" in urban air transport, adding: "We think it's really part of the future."


Cole admitted, according to the British newspaper, “The Guardian”: “There is some time before we can achieve this on the ground, and we believe that by the latter part of this decade for sure, urban air mobility will provide a significant opportunity to reduce congestion in cities, to help reduce of emissions, whether it's commuting within the city in the air or even between cities."


"It is part of our future solution to provide smart and innovative mobility solutions," he said at a conference of the industry group "Automobile Manufacturers and Traders Association."


The company demonstrated the flying car concept, which was co-developed with delivery companies, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2020.


The carmaker is also involved in the UK's first airport without a runway, designed for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, due to open in Coventry later this year.


The newspaper considered that the "urban airport" could be used by aircraft, including air taxis, and self-driving delivery drones.
