Hyundai [1] just unveiled a series of new concepts for single-person vehicles [2] that can navigate heavily congested cities – including a multi-rotor flying car [3]! The next-gen vehicle is propelled by four electric motors [4] and propellers and it can hover over the ground, keeping the driver above congestion.

For the last three years, Hyundai [1] 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 [6] that can travel at low speeds on narrow roads in urban areas.

Hyundai [1] 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.
