Forget Flying Cars, We’ve Got Flying Taxis on the Horizon
“People waste billions of hours sitting on roads worldwide each year. We envision a future where commuting by eVTOL is a safer, faster, and cost-competitive alternative to ground transportation,” said JoeBen Bevirt of Joby Aviation.
The idea of Flying Cars has been around for decades and has lasted as long as the desire for one by modern man. And yet those desires are always shot down by logical statements pointing out how implausible a Flying Car is. Even Governments have weighed in and decided to put the final nail into the coffin regarding such things effectively killing the idea of it happening. But one company is coming up with the next best thing, a Flying Taxi!
Dubbed the eVTOL, Joby Aviation has put together a craft that fuses a plane and drone together that can seat up to five people that can achieve 150 miles of flight time with a single charge. There’s no telling if those will remain true or not for the final product however as Joby Aviation has been incredibly quiet and secretive regarding their eVTOL. Some might doubt the eVOTL getting off the ground because of it, but Joby Aviation has been granted a $100 million fund from several different companies who all clearly want to see the eVOTL reach its potential and be available.
So be patient and keep an eye out for the eVOTL in the near future. It’s going to be a guaranteed game changer for public transportation.
