Hyundai flying taxis

Hyundai's claim of flying cars by 2030 features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter features the chief executive for operations at Hyundai, Michael Cole, who says that flying cars will be in our cities "by the latter part of this decade".

South Korean automaker Hyundai, which is developing a flying taxi with Uber, expects electric flying cars to be seen in cities before the end of the decade.

Cole told the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders conference that, "urban air mobility will offer great opportunity to free up congestion in cities, to help with emissions, whether that's intra-city mobility in the air or whether it's even between cities".

Readers aren't convinced. One asked: "What could go wrong?"
