If you’re still getting used to the reality of electric cars, you’re in for a big wake-up call. Suzuki has announced that it has signed an agreement with SkyDrive to start manufacturing electric “flying cars”.
Manufacturing will start as early as March 2024 in one of Suzuki’s factories in Japan.
In a statement, Suzuki said that the agreement still needs to be finalised as certain terms of the agreement haven’t been discussed or confirmed yet.
Suzuki and SkyDrive aren’t the only companies working on changing the way we travel.
In a statement, Airbus said that it has been experimenting with electric planes for a number of years and that hybrid-electronic propulsion is rapidly revolutionising mobility technologies across industries.
In 2010, Airbus developed the CriCri, the world’s first fully-electric, four-engine electric aircraft. This was followed by Air Race E in 2021, an actual airplane race.
According to the statement, Airbus says its work in electric flights will “lay the groundwork for future industry-wide adoption and regulatory acceptance of alternative-propulsion commercial aircraft and urban air vehicles”.
