Xpeng AeroHT: Chinese company Xpeng AeroHT has last 10 years of experience in the field of low-altitude exploration. This time in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024), the company has also given a demo of its flying car. This is not only a concept but the company is also going to start its production and booking soon.
Xpeng AeroHT Flying Car: Many new concepts and electric vehicles are being introduced in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024) held in Las Vegas, America. Meanwhile, China’s leading tech company XPENG has also introduced its flying car XPENG AEROHT. This car flying in the air attracted a lot of attention of the people as soon as it came on the stage. Interestingly, this is not an ordinary concept vehicle, which has been showcased only for branding or promotion, but the company is serious about this modular flying car.
The company says that, by the end of this year, official booking of this flying car will be started in China and there is also a plan to start its delivery by the year 2025. Users will be able to use this flying car by the end of 2025. Asia’s largest flying car company XPENG claims that this new concept will change the future of transportation.
How is this flying car
As told by the company, the design of this flying car is divided into two parts, which allows it to run on the ground as well as fly in the air. This is an electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (eVTOL), which can easily move on the road like a car and if needed, it can also be flown in the air like an aircraft.
The mechanism of Xpeng AeroHT is divided into two parts, which can be switched between terrestrial and aerial modes. Its air module facility allows it to perform vertical take-off like a helicopter, while the ground module makes it easy to operate on the road as ground transportation. The target of this ‘Land Aircraft Carrier’ is to make human transportation from land to air easier.
Will be effective in emergency also
The company has announced in a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024 in Las Vegas that the ‘Land Aircraft Carrier’ has been developed in such a way that it can be used in both private and public sectors. It can also be used as an individual personal vehicle, and in case of emergency, it can also be used for emergency services, rescue operations etc. The company also gave its live demo. This is the first time that the company has given a demo of this vehicle anywhere outside China.
This company is a subsidiary of XPENG MOTORS and has been doing excellent work in the field of low-altitude exploration for the last 10 years. In the race to take flying cars out of the realm of fantasy and into reality, XPENG AEROHT has designed both its electric vertical take-off and landing flying car and its modular ‘land aircraft carrier’ to take a trip through the air .
Ready for production
The company says that land aircraft carrier is the future transportation. This is not just the introduction of a concept, but a real concrete step. After passing all the stages of rigorous research and development, this modular flying car has now reached the final stage for mass production.
