ResearchInChina has released the “Global and Chinese Flying Car Industry Research Report 2022”. A flying car is a three-dimensional vehicle. Generally speaking, it is a low-altitude intelligent autonomous transport tool carrying goods or people, namely the electric vertical take-off. and landing (eVTOL).
New York, June 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com Announces Release of “Global and China Flying Car Industry Research Report, 2022” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06286410/?utm_source=GNW
It features electric vertical take-off and landing, intelligent self-driving, amphibious transportation, and more.
The multi-rotor configuration is the current mainstream
Technical configurations of flying cars mainly include four types: fixed wings, multi-rotors, composite wings and tilt wings. Among them, the most traditional fixed wings are rarely used due to the inability to take off and land vertically and to hover. On the market, the most used multi-rotors take off and land vertically, hover with precision, are simple to maneuver with little technical difficulty and land quickly. But, they are only suitable for transportation over short distances due to short range.
In the future, with the improvement of the road network and the growth of the demand for long-distance transport, composite wings and tilt wings with longer range and faster cruising speed will gradually become the mainstream.
Around 2025, flying cars will emerge
According to the schedule announced by the sellers, the commercialization of the flying cars will take place around 2025. By then, the Summer Olympics in Paris 2024 and Expo 2025 in Osaka will be in the global spotlight. Therefore, Paris and Osaka deployed flying cars.
The city of Paris hopes to create two dedicated flight paths to carry passengers for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. One line will carry passengers via Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Le Bourget airports, while the second will operate between two suburbs in the southwest of the French capital.
Currently, Volocopter and Airbus have commercial plans for the Paris Olympics. Volocopter successfully flew its electric air taxi “helicopter”, the VoloCity, from Le Bourget airport in 2021. Also in 2021, Airbus unveiled CityAirbus NextGen, a four-seat all-electric eVTOL multicopter concept featuring a wing, for the general public during the 2024 Olympic Games.
Osaka, Japan has established a very detailed roadmap for the commercialization of flying cars: scheduled flights will be opened in 2025, routes will be added in 2030, and aircraft will be larger and more diverse in 2035. SkyDrive and Joby Aviation have planned to provide commercial services during Expo 2025 Osaka (in February 2022, ANA HOLDINGS, INC. and Joby Aviation have announced that they are forming a partnership that will see Japan’s largest airline join Joby in bringing air ridesharing services to cities and communities across Japan Toyota Motor Corporation has also joined the partnership ).
How do flying cars become possible? The mode of operation of the platform is the prerequisite
Usually, a flying car costs over $300,000 (for example, PAL-V Liberty sells the standard model, known as the Liberty Sport, for $399,000). As automation technology is not yet perfect, most eVTOLs require operators with pilot certificates or pilots. Therefore, the mode of operation of the platform is the main business model of the initial phase.
For example, Joby Aviation plans to launch an app-based ridesharing service in 2024. Volocopter also plans a comprehensive ridesharing service process, allowing customers to inquire about ridesharing services through the website, the application and the Volocopter VoloPort kiosk before placing an order, enjoying the services and then evaluating them. In addition, EHang’s ridesharing service process includes “finding a suitable route in the APP – selecting a destination – selecting an EHang AAV and booking”.
