In the very near future, the whole world might have to accept flying cars as a “norm”, just as it’s currently doing so for the latest trend of electric vehicles that used to be a “fantasy” some years back.

Yes, eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff & landing) aircraft or simply put – flying cars could become a reality very soon. A recent report has it that an Israeli aeronautics company is currently pushing forward with its eVTOL flying taxi called “CityHawk”. This report also claims that the company has recently signed a deal with another company known as HyPoint, in an effort to make the proposed flying car to be powered by Hydrogen fuel cells.

As of today, experts are still unsure if Nigerians can actually adopt electric vehicles, not to talk of even imagining if Nigeria is ready for flying cars. Similarly, there are still many African nations and other countries around the world that are also yet to fully adopt electric vehicles talk less of thinking about flying cars. However, such challenges aren’t going to stop the Israeli company, Urban Aeronautics from continuing to pursue the development of a fully functional eVTOL flying taxi. Yes, not even a flying car anymore but rather a flying taxi.
