Pop.Up Next: How does the flying car work?

At the Geneva Motor Show, the modular system for urban ground and airspace was a major highlight. Our video shows how it works.
„Flying Car“, „Car Drone System“, „Self-driving air taxi“:  At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Pop.Up Next was among the biggest attractions, filling visitors, media and social networks with enthusiasm. One year after the world premiere of Pop.Up, the advanced version of this very first fully electric and zero-emission modular system impresses with a refined aerodynamic design, a great weight reduction, optimised system’s efficiency and onboard electronic. Pop.Up Next  combines the flexibility of a small two seater ground vehicle with the freedom and speed of a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) air vehicle, thus bridging the automotive and aerospace domains. But how exactly does this visionary vehicle system work? And how will it affect our daily mobility? Our video explains. 

Pop.Up Next was developed by Italdesign in collaboration with Airbus and Audi. The system aims to give time back to commuters through a flexible, shared and adaptable new way of moving within cities introducing a new user-focused transportation system concept, designed to help resolve traffic congestion in large urban areas. An Artificial Intelligence platform will manage the trips offering passengers multiple optimized choices of transport combinations to match their travel preferences.
