Hyundai  just unveiled a series of new concepts for single-person vehicles  that can navigate heavily congested cities – including a multi-rotor flying car ! The next-gen vehicle is propelled by four electric motors  and propellers and it can hover over the ground, keeping the driver above congestion.
For the last three years, Hyundai  has organized this internal contest to enhance and expand R&D staff’s creativity, and to discover fresh ideas for future mobility. The engineers use the contest to demonstrate how new thinking can create new and innovative possibilities. The multi-rotor flying car is just one of the concept’s that was presented during the contest.
Hyundai’s engineers also unveiled a few other concepts like a portable transporting car that you can carry around with you, a road car that can easily be transformed into a bike and the E4U egg-shaped car  that can travel at low speeds on narrow roads in urban areas.
Hyundai  is currently working on the next event with the theme being “R&D for customers” – focusing on how to meet customers’ future needs. The prototypes will be unveiled in September.
