The vehicle could reach speeds of 402 km / h, being able to travel 800 kilometers without refueling. Thus, Rolls Royce joins several companies already working on their own versions of the Flying Taxi.

Rob Watson, chief of Rolls Royce‘s Electric Department, said: “We are in a position to play a leading role in the emerging world of air transport, and we will also be looking to work with more partners.”

Flying cars have long been a science fiction, but aviation and technology companies are working hard to turn them into reality. Airbus , Uber and several start-ups, one of which was funded by the Google co-founder Larry Page – Kitty Hawk – all of them have announced such projects.

British manufacturer Rolls Royce initially confessed that the EVTOL concept used gas turbine technology to power 6 electric propellers, specially designed to be noisy.

The wings of the vehicle could rotate 90 degrees, allowing it to take off or land vertically. The car can also use heliports or airports.
