Will We See the Introduction of Flying Cars by 2025?

To enable such new transportation solutions, current aircraft manufacturers have been working heavily on electric and hybrid electric technologies. This research is proceeding at an astounding pace, and there has been great strides taken even in the last 2 years. This will allow significant noise reduction, lower operating and aircrafts costs, compared with current helicopters. Where are we on Development? There have been several first prototypes being tested from different eVTOL manufacturer in different countries.

The USA also has taken a central role in this technology development,...
