Talking about traffic in the air, there has always been this highly-recognized news report. In September 2019, Volocopter, a transportation company in Germany, received a 50-euro equity financing (equivalent to 390 million RMB), which was led by Geely Holding Group and invested by Daimler Co., Ltd., and Volocopter has accumulated 8500 at this stage. Ten thousand euros (about 670 million yuan) financing.
The so-called Volocopter, the key business process is the electric manned helicopter that produces short-haul aviation. The name of the first item is Volocopter. There are 18 rotors on the top of the model, and it is not a traditional module. All models of the drive control module are electric. Easy to manufacture, no complicated technology, and 18 rotors are system software for separate work. Even if two or three rotors have problems, the airport can still land stably and the safety factor is ensured. Therefore, when Volocopter's first product came out, it received the attention of many car manufacturers.
Not only Volocopter is favored by auto companies, but also many aircraft design and manufacturing companies have achieved huge equity financing. For example, Nexus is a product of Bell and Uber's mutual development trend for large cities and air traffic. It can be used with 4 passengers and 1 aviation crew. From an application perspective, Nexus is better than Volocopter. Therefore, many international airlines such as Airbus, Bell, Mexican Airlines, Kalem Airport, Bat Airport have become the pro-customers of this product.
There is also this Terrafugia flying car, and it is also for Geely to look at its development prospects. A long time ago, Geely announced that it had reached a final agreement with the British Ferrfugia flying car company, which would recycle all of Terrafugia's business processes and assets.
