This Futuristic Flying Car Is A 250MPH eVTOL Small Enough To Fit In Your Garage

With the rate at which airborne transportation has been developing as of late, the flying cars of the future could be here as soon as tomorrow. Up until now, most of what we’ve seen has been intended for commercial application, but with the unveiling of Urban eVTOL’s latest concept, it looks like there’s finally one coming for consumer use.

And while most other eVTOLs are ungainly and insect-like in shape, the ‘LEO’ is quite sleek and flowing, even eye-catching with its gullwing doors and see-through floor. Not surprising, though, when you consider that one of the company’s Co-Founders is Carlos Salaff, the man who designed the Mazda Furai. Beyond looking like something out of Blade Runner, it’s been envisioned with seating for up to three and a compact 10′ by 20′ footprint. In practice, such a small size means that it can fit in most two-car garages, also proving extremely useful in air taxi and rescue applications. At this point, the exact performance specs are obviously limited, but we do know that Urban eVTOL is hoping to use a fully-shrouded, DARPA-funded Electric Jet Aircraft propulsion system, enabling completely autonomous piloting, one-hour flight times, and top speeds up to 250mph. Check it out at the link below.
