Hyundai will unveil its first concept Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) as part of the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) landscape. The use of airspace is expected to alleviate road congestion and give back quality time to city commuters.
The South Korean automaker’s vision continues with its Purpose Built Vehicle (PBV).
This highly customizable concept with the autonomous driving feature allows for limitless possibilities to turn the vehicle to be more than just a means of transportation.
These two smart mobility devices will come together at the Hub, which will be located throughout cities in the future and used as community spaces.
According to Hyundai, UAM is expected to become a critically important part of the integrated mobility solution for ever-increasing traffic problems in megacities around the world.
In October, Hyundai created a UAM division and hired longtime NASA aeronautics director Dr. Jaiwon Shin to lead the company into a new era of developing smart mobility products within the aviation industry.
The company will showcase its flying car concept at the Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, in the first week of January 2020.
