Hyundai's Leap into the Future: eVTOL Concept to Debut at CES 2024

The automotive industry is poised on the precipice of a new era with Hyundai Motor Group leading the charge into the future of transportation. Their focus? Developing flying cars. The South Korean automaker's US-based urban air mobility (UAM) company, Supernal, is gearing up to take the wraps off a life-size concept model of an electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (eVTOL) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024 in Las Vegas.

Into the Future with eVTOLs

Set to be the star of CES 2024, which runs from January 9 to 12 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the eVTOL is Hyundai's ambitious step towards revolutionizing urban transportation. The eVTOL, an aircraft that can take off and land vertically like a helicopter but fly like a plane, represents the potential solution to urban congestion and the need for swift, sustainable, and convenient transport. Its unveiling at the world's largest tech exhibition puts Hyundai at the forefront of the mobility revolution.

But the eVTOL is not the only feather in Hyundai's cap for CES 2024. Supernal will also be erecting a vertiport exhibition outside the convention center, providing visitors with an immersive experience of urban air mobility. A vertiport, a launch pad specifically designed for eVTOLs, functions similarly to a heliport. The exhibition aims to give attendees a close and personal look at the future of transportation.

Advancing Air Mobility Ecosystem

At CES, Supernal also plans to reveal its visionary strategies for establishing an advanced air mobility (AAM) ecosystem. The proposed ecosystem includes not only the operation of eVTOLs but also potential flight networks and the role that Hyundai Motor Group will play in this futuristic transportation roadmap. The goal? To transform the way we view and utilize urban transportation, turning the fantasy of flying cars into a reality. With a significant stride towards commercialization expected in 2028, the future of transportation as we know it is on the cusp of a radical transformation.
