Morgenstern never dreamed of such a Cadillac. Self-driving flying Cadillac will be able to land and take off vertically
General Motors has unveiled a new futuristic self-driving car, Cadillac, which can fly and transport passengers by air.
The self-driving Cadillac will be able to land and take off vertically, according to Reuters. According to one of the company’s executives, the new concept car is “rethinking the future of personal transportation.”
The flying Cadillac from General Motors can only carry one passenger and is technically more like a drone with four propellers located in different planes. As conceived by the authors, a flying Cadillac will be able to move even in conditions of heavy traffic in a metropolis, flying from roof to roof. The maximum speed will be 88 km / h.
In addition to being fully self-driving, the flying Cadillac is also fully electric. A storage battery with a capacity of 90 kWh will be installed in it. You can watch a video demonstrating the prototype here.
Back in 2020, General Motors top executives said the company was exploring alternative modes of travel, including air taxis.
