Gitex 2022, the city’s yearly premier technology exhibition, featured a flying two-seater car as a display of the future of transportation.
The groundbreaking eVTOL flying car X2, created by Chinese electric vehicle maker XPeng, took flight for the first time in front of the general public on Monday at Skydive Dubai. Dubai International Chamber is one of three Chambers functioning under Dubai Chambers.
The autonomous aircraft flew for 90 minutes over the gathering of onlookers who had gathered to witness the beginning of a new era of short-haul flights and intelligent mobility solutions after taking off in Dubai.
The cutting-edge two-seater eVTOL flying car X2 is the most recent generation of flying cars created separately by XPENG’s affiliate XPENG AEROHT. It is outfitted with an intelligent flight control system and autonomous flight capabilities.
With a top flying speed of 130 kph, the X2 generates no carbon dioxide and is built with low-altitude city capabilities in mind.
The Chinese manufacturer is one of many businesses demonstrating that flying cars are a reality, not just a sci-fi concept, and they may influence how we travel, work, and live in the decades to come.
Electric gliders, fixed-wing aircraft, quadcopter drones, and even flying cars have all been made possible by advances in battery energy density, materials science, and computer simulation.
