AirSpaceX is confident it will revolutionise public transport with its “flying taxi” by as soon as 2026.
The MOBi-ONE is the latest step towards being able to act out Back To The Future, as the vehicle boasts its able to outclass any other form of transport, freeing up the roads on the ground.
“AirSpaceX CEO Rimanelli is confident the vehicle will be ready for demonstration by 2020 and up and running in the 50 busiest cities in America by 2026.”
“There is an urgent need for innovation in urban mobility, and I believe on-demand air mobility will go a long way toward reducing pressure on roads while improving the quality of life for commuters on the ground,” says Rimanelli.
“The vehicle is designed to autonomously take off like a helicopter; fly like a plane, and transport passengers or cargo between urban centers, suburbs, and airports within 50 miles. MOBi-ONE will fly at a top speed of 250 mph leveraging existing electric vehicle architecture and autonomous technologies.”
“MOBi-ONE will offer clean, quiet, and connected on-demand air mobility to the mass traveling public at an affordable price,” says Jon Rimanelli, founder and CEO of Detroit Aircraft and AirSpaceX. “Our vision is to mass produce aircraft leveraging lean automotive design and mass production techniques so our vehicles are affordable to the mass travelling public.”
“Our goal is to deploy 2,500 aircraft at the nation’s 50 largest cities by 2026, targeting existing infrastructure at first,” says JP Yorro, Chief Commercial Officer at AirSpaceX. “
