The first flying car in India might become a reality by as early as 2021. We have come across a lot of speculations and concepts regarding mass-production flying cars before. Even Uber is planning to introduce flying taxi concepts in the not-too-distant future.
ET Auto shares that the country will receive its first flying car from 'roadable aircraft' manufacturers, PAL-V. There have been many prototypes introduced in India as part of science fairs and college projects, but none of them ever made it into production.
Images shown are for representational purposes only.
The news about India's first mass-production flying car was shared by Robert Dingemanse, the CEO of PAL-V. "While our car is set for launch in 2020, our entire production for the year is booked. We hope to see India get its first car in 2021," said Robert.
"The Indian government seems upbeat about futuristic technology and hopefully, adoption," he added. Robert was speaking on the sidelines of Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2019; a global trade show held in Gandhinagar.
PAL-V aims to find clients for their upcoming flying car form various fields of expertise such as private business, medical authorities, coast guard, government agencies and the police department. Flying cars (or a similar kind of mobility solution) will assist these departments by a good extent and help them set a new efficiency benchmark.
However, implementing new flying-mobility solutions for urban environments is not as easy it seems, though a timeline of just two years was shared in advance. PAL-V is still trying to source vendors from various manufacturing spheres to initiate and accelerate the production processes.
Speaking about this, Robert commented, "On the production side, we hope to find Indian vendors specialising in automotive and aerospace engineering to start manufacturing here"
"We seek partnerships to enhance the engineering and software capabilities of our flying car that will be available commercially in 2020," stated the PAL-V boss.
Thoughts On Flying Cars Coming To India
It is to be noted that although the term 'flying car' was used in this context, the product in question will essentially be a drone, large and capable enough to carry human passengers. Whether PAL-V will be able to introduce such a product within the stipulated time period is something we have to eagerly wait and see.
