Last month, Toyota invested $370,000 into a small Japanese company called Cartivator, which has developed a unique flying car with a scheduled first manned flight in 2018. The 30-person company consists of some current and former employees of Toyota, and Toyota is now offering part-time expert engineering assistance as part of its investment in Cartivator. The company plans to debut its flying car to the world by using it to light the 2020 Olympic torch in Tokyo.
