According to feiauto, at the Shanghai Auto Show to be held in late April, Volocopter, a German flying car company in which Geely and Daimler have a stake, will exhibit its star product flying car. On September 9, 2019, Geely Holdings and Daimler announced that they would jointly invest 50 million euros to join the Volocopter board of directors. According to the agreement, the two parties will establish a joint venture company in China, and Geely will be responsible for production and promotion. This is also one of the two flying car companies that Geely has set foot in in the field of travel in recent years.
In November 2017, Geely acquired Terrafugia, an American flying car company, and Geely plans to launch flying cars in 2023. According to feiauto's understanding, Geely Flying Car Company is located in Wuhan, Hubei Province, with a planned annual production capacity of 500,000 vehicles. However, Geely did not disclose the market positioning of the two flying companies. Public information shows that Volocopter was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Germany. It has received investments from Daimler and Intel. It is worth mentioning that Daimler led Volocopter to invest 30 million US dollars in financing to become Volocopter's strategy in 2017. investor. Prior to this, Volocopter also received investment from chip giant Intel.
Unlike some flying car projects that are still in concept, Volocopter's first-generation product achieved manned flight in 2011, and then completed test flights in many countries. Volocopter believes that by 2030, more than 60% of the world's population will be Living in a city, one way to deal with the challenges of urbanization is to "go to heaven" This idea is quite common with Geely. Li Shufu, chairman of Geely Holding Group, once publicly stated that flying cars is a very exciting field.
In addition to flying cars, Geely will also launch its new high-end pure electric vehicle brand Jikrypton’s first model, Jikrypton 001. This car is refreshing in terms of technical indicators and styling. It is considered by the industry to be a model. Very competitive models. Looking at the domestic and foreign markets, Geely is far more than the flying car. Take the local car company Xiaopeng Motors as an example. At the Beijing International Auto Show in September last year, Xiaopeng Motors released the first ultra-low-altitude flying car Traveler T1 and stated that the flying car supports ultra-low-altitude flights of 5-25 meters. , But the pace is significantly slower than Geely. According to incomplete statistics, more than 160 companies around the world have invested in research and development and business activities related to flying cars. However, from the concept to the complete vehicle, the investment required is not a little bit. It is difficult to say who the winner will be in the end, but it is clear that this new track, both in terms of imagination and threshold, far exceeds that of electric vehicles.（图文仅供参考/飞行汽车 www.feiauto.com）
