Air mobility in Russia

The Future Mobility session, dedicated to innovations in the automotive industry, was remembered for interesting discussions, in particular, the topic of air transport “Air taxis – are these Besson films or tomorrow?”.

Alexander Atamanov, CEO of the Russian development company, spoke about the development of the air vehicle industry and about his own Hover project, within which a working prototype has already been created and tested.

The Chinese company Xpeng, which presented the concept of its air car, plans to compete with the Russian Hover. According to the company, a full-fledged flying car will be released as early as 2024.

As part of the Xpeng Tech Day 2022 event, the company showed what its real flycar can be. Considering that the company showed only a concept, it is possible that the Russian development will reach the market faster.
