Chinese firm tests flying taxi in UAE
A Chinese firm has tested out an electric flying taxi in Dubai, offering a glimpse of futuristic technology that could one day whisk people through cities high above any traffic.
The XPeng X2, developed by the Guangzhou-based XPeng Inc’s aviation affiliate, is one of dozens of flying car projects around the world.
Only a handful have been successfully tested with passengers on board and it will likely be many years before any are put into service.
Monday’s demonstration was held with an empty cockpit but the company says it carried out a manned flight test in July 2021.
