The British start-up successfully tested…

For anyone who spends a lot of time each day commuting to work, the idea of ​​doing it in minutes is invaluable. Can you imagine? No traffic jams, no train delays, no more cold at bus stops – just what could be better? All this is promised by about 100 companies engaged in the development of electric transport “Vertical Take-off and Landing” (eVTOL).

It looks like we’ll be able to fly flying cars around 2028, thanks to British eVTOL Bellwether Industries. Namely, they have prepared an interesting concept of a flying electric vehicle, which is a step ahead of the entire competition. The Bellwether Volar has successfully completed its first test flight. Although this is only a model vehicle, the first tests have shown that these vehicles could become a part of our daily lives in the near future.

The Bellwether Volar was designed as a city aircraft. The width of the final version will be 3.2 meters, while the prototype for recent test flights was about half as small. The current prototype is a two-seater, and the real flying car is expected to seat four to five passengers. The new vehicle is expected to fly at an altitude of about 1,000 meters and reach a cruising speed of 215 kilometers per hour. The batteries are expected to last up to 90 minutes of battery life. This is similar to similar vehicles currently under construction.
