Technology News: We have a dream of flying cars; we have been watching these cars in various movies and especially in the world-famous series Harry Potter. Now this dream has become true. Dubai recently witnessed the first public flight of futuristic technology that China has produced.
The Chinese company Xpeng, tested the world’s first flying electric taxi earlier this week. To bring luxury and comfortable life or to make people’s lives easier, the firm gave a test piece of what the future could look like with these flying cars.
This is an autonomous two-seater flying car that has a maximum take-off weight of 760 kg, a 560 kg empty weight, and a 130 km/h top flight speed. The car has a 35-minute flight time and is made of premium carbon fibre. Additionally, the car can carry only 2 passengers at one time.
However, this is not the first car in the world, and many have been made before this. But this is the first that has been successfully tested with the passengers onboard. According to the reports, it is believed that flying cars could be available for commercial use in the next two to three years.
The Executive director for international offices at the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Omar Abdulaziz AlKhan said, it depends on how fast we can adapt the framework of commercialized urban flying. Sooner or later, there will be more tests happening in Dubai, and then it will be commercialized.
