WRITER FUEL: Are We Finally Getting the Flying Cars We Were Promised?

LuftCar flying car

A vehicle that’s a strange blend between a futuristic electric minivan and the rear half of an airplane could soon revolutionize island-hopping. The unusual vehicle, which is currently still only a concept, will be able to travel both on land and in the air and be powered by electricity or hydrogen, its designers claim.

The Luft Pinoy electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) project is being designed as a novel way to traverse the 7,101 islands that make up the Philippines archipelago. It’s being developed through a collaboration between Florida-based startup LuftCar and the eFrancisco Motor Corporation (eFMC) from the Philippines — with a prototype expected to be completed before the end of 2024.

“Our flying and road vehicle concept is tailor made for connecting the archipelagos and serving cargo, air ambulance, tourism, and regional transportation verticals,” Santh Sathya, CEO of LuftCar, said in a statement. “Our hydrogen propulsion will serve long distance and heavy payload carrying needs in the region.”
