Audi, Airbus and Italdesign jointly test Flying Taxi Concept

At Drone Week in Amsterdam Audi, Airbus and Italdesign are presented for the first time a flying and driving prototype of “Pop.Up Next”.

This innovative concept for a flying taxi combines a self-driving electric car with a passenger drone. In the first public test flight, the flight module accurately placed a passenger capsule on the ground module, which then drove from the test grounds autonomously.

This is still a 1:4 scale model. But as soon as the coming decade, Audi customers could use a convenient and efficient flying taxi service in large cities, in multi-modal operation, in the air and on the road. Without changing vehicles, passengers will enjoy their leisure time, relax, or work.
