The Problem: A 25-mile commute in Delhi takes an average of 3 hours.
A Solution: Flying cars enable Indian urbanites to fly over traffic jams, saving potentially millions of hours of productivity per day.
Uber Elevate imagines a network of small e-VTOL vehicles that can quickly pick up and drop off passengers at certain locations, cutting hour-long commute times to under ten minutes for the price of $37. But to take the theory from concept to reality, regulation is a major consideration as flying cars that also travel on road would have to comply with both aircraft and vehicle regulations. Safety is also important as proper battery maintenance would be necessary to ensure these cars stay flying.
