Suzuki To Make Flying Cars By 2024

Suzuki is making flying cars, and to do that, they’ve signed an agreement with Aichi-based SkyDrive, Inc.

SkyDrive will establish a 100 percent owned subsidiary to manufacture flying cars. Suzuki and SkyDrive will utilize a plant owned by Suzuki Group in Shizuoka Prefecture, and aim to start the manufacturing of the said flying cars by around the early part of 2024.

Suzuki will also cooperate with SkyDrive’s manufacturing subsidiary in preparing for the start of manufacturing, including securing of human resources. Specific terms of the agreement will continue to be discussed and will be agreed on separately.

The announcement comes a day after SkyDrive, a leading flying car start-up in Japan, unveiled at the Paris Airshow a plan to change the design of its vehicle under development so it can carry three people instead of two.

The new design, which has an overall length of about 13 meters and a height of 3 meters, will extend the maximum flight range to about 15 kilometers from the current 10 kilometers. 

SkyDrive, set up by former Toyota engineers in 2018, is aiming to utilize its flying vehicles at the 2025 World Exposition in Osaka.

The partnership is apt because Suzuki Philippines does have a motorcycle called, you guessed it, SkyDrive.
