This GM Flying Car Concept Looks Like It’s Straight Out of West World

General Motors has unveiled a flying car concept and it looks like something straight out of Westworld.The flying car concept doesn’t have an official name but it is designed to be a single-seater electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

General Motors eVTOL Car

The vehicle was unveiled as part of Cadillac’s Halo Portfolio of designs so it’s a long way from becoming a practical mode of transport.

That said, Cadillac has a few of its mechanics figured out. The eVTOL aircraft will supposedly use a GM Ultium battery and a 90kWh electric motor to power four rotors similar to a drone.

It also features a pack and an ultra-lightweight body with four pairs of rotors. Meanwhile, the largely glass cabin offers a panoramic view of the world below you.

Unfortunately, that’s all about we know about the eVTOL concept as a GM spokesperson declined to share any more details on it.
