Flying cars one step closer with new hydrogen cell fuel source, company says

CityHawk eVTOL

Next-generation hydrogen fuel cell specialist HyPoint has claimed that its technology could be the key to developing flying cars.

So far contained to the realms of science-fiction, flying cars would require an energy source better than any we use today.

HyPoint believes that its hydrogen fuel cell solution, not yet commercially available, could be the answer.

It said that the fuel cells offer zero-carbon emissions, superior energy performance, and refuel in minutes, representing a dramatic improvement over existing fuel systems.

The company said that, in addition to flying cars, the technology could help improve drones and electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles too.

Urban Aeronautics has also contracted HyPoint to develop a hydrogen fuel cell for its CityHawk eVTOL.
