Hyundai is working very hard on an air taxi and the new S-A1 Air Taxi is definitely an interesting concept. The Uber Taxi they have here is very interesting and they do a very good job at coming up with great features and interesting prototypes.
You can get some cruising speeds that go up to 180 mph, and the unit can go up to 1000 and 2000 feet, which is very good. Apparently, the S-A1 Air Taxi will work only on a distance of 60 miles, which is still a whole lot considering the fact this is a first-generation vehicle basically.
It seems that the noise is not going to be that bad, with the unit targeting around 67 dB in the middle of the air. Plus, the main thing is that this is a unit that can be operated automatically.
There’s no need to worry about something that doesn’t reply to controls or anything, it’s fully automated. While the Uber Taxis are not here yet, the reality is that they are working on the technology and Hyundai’s S-A1 Air Taxi is a great work of art in this regard.
They also talked about the rates, stating that they will not be very expensive. The interior is designed to be as comfortable and as safe as possible.
Hyundai also opened up about a set of urban transportation hubs they want to create where people can switch from air to ground transport. These centers can eventually become museums and even small shopping centers can be a part of them.
Apparently, the possibilities are limitless, so it’s easy to see how everything will eventually come together and how all these features will work in the long term. Still, the future seems bright for Uber’s air transportation, and Hyundai’s S-A1 Air Taxi seems to be a very capable vehicle.
