Air Cars has always been a long-awaited vision of the future. As early as the 1940s of the 20th century, the founder of Ford Motor Co., Ford Motor Co., boldly spread the scientific research prediction that "flying cars will eventually appear." So, at the beginning of the new decade, how far are people from the ideal of flying? Manhattan Insights shared the independent innovation and progress of flying taxis in the four sales markets of the United Kingdom, Southeast Asia, China and Europe.
United Kingdom: Cora opens in the United Kingdom, Uber creates multilateral cooperative strategic partnerships in foreign markets, and the most concerned taxi independent innovation comes from Wisk, an independent innovation company co-funded by Airbus and Google CEO, and its shared resources Uber, the transportation giant. Wisk, a Chinese-foreign joint venture invested by the Boeing and Google CEO Larry Page project, announced in February 20 that it has signed a memorandum of cooperation with the New Zealand government and will use its all-electric fully automatic four-axis aircraft Cora Flying taxi used. In addition, Uber has launched a helicopter service project in New York City in July 2019. It is committed to presenting the main airport airport logistics transportation in big cities. Everyone must have about 200 to 225 US dollars per trip. Uber was able to explore the business model of its flying cars early by enabling the business process over the sky.
Southeast Asia: Grab cooperates with Volocopter to rationally arrange the sales market in Southeast Asia. The most noticeable independent innovation of taxis in the sky comes from the new airline Volocopter established by Air France and larger transportation in Southeast Asia. Project cooperation with service provider Grab. Volocopter received a project investment of 50 million Euros from China's Geely in September 19th, and will start a taxi test with Grab in February 20th.

China: EHang completed several first flights. With good intentions, the number of motor vehicles in China has been rapidly increased due to the rational allocation of multiple project investments. The contradiction between supply and demand for transportation has become increasingly serious, which has increased the level of congestion on municipal roads.

According to the investment in Volocopter and Terrafugia's projects, we are looking forward to introducing the world's leading air transportation solutions to our country, and in addition to undertake the manufacturing and brand promotion of the products of such enterprises in our country. As part of the demonstration site plan, EHang has established an air traffic control management center in cooperation with the Guangzhou government. In addition, it also plans to transport low net weight medical supplies, including bloody nights for emergency situations and diagnosis and treatment of human organs.
Europe: Scientific research organizations collaborated with automotive companies, Airbus made several first flights to Europe. The key players in Europe are in international airlines and car manufacturers in the United States and France. In addition to Daimler's cooperation project with good intentions to invest in Volocopter, Airbus Airbus has also created its own eVTOL airport, Wahana.
