Xpeng Inc, a Chinese electronic vehicle manufacturer, publicly tested the electric flying car (9868. HK).As the company prepares to launch electric aircraft on global markets, the X2 automobile made its first public flight in the United Arab Emirates at GITEX 2022.0
According to reports, the X2 is a two-seat electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft with eight propellers, two at each corner of the vehicle.
The vehicle’s manufacturer hailed Monday’s 90-minute unmanned test flight in Dubai as a critical building block for the future development of flying automobiles.” Minguan Quin, General Manager of Xpeng Aeroht We are making step-by-step (moves) to the international market,” still” Dubai is the most innovative city in the world, so we chose Dubai first.”
Every year, China makes a concerted effort to amaze the rest of the world with its technological achievements. This time, it’s a flying car, and it’s got a lot of people wondering what other applications cutting-edge technology might have.
African nations were among the people who came to watch the two-seat electric car take off on its first public flight in Dubai at GITEX 2022.
Is Africa ready for this revolutionary technological advancement of flying cars?
You probably agree that most developing countries might not be ready for flying cars, and there are also safety and security issues in Africa. These worries are complicated and are shaped by many different cultural factors.
In addition, significant research problems need to be investigated in depth, which, once again, will require a significant investment of both financial and human resources.
These include whether or not African countries are willing to accept and pay for flying cars as personal vehicles or as public transportation services.
Along with survey-based approaches, virtual and live motion and simulation (M&S) based methodologies are needed for in-depth research on safety, infrastructure, economic sustainability, environmental factors, and human factor-specific needs, which is not being done.
Policies and guidelines that govern future technology development, testing, assessment, validation, and deployment will be significantly influenced by how Flying Cars develop.
Most African countries are not ready for this new technological development. To standardize and maintain a full-scale network of flying cars, it will be essential to look at current laws and devise the right incentives.
It makes me mad when I think about how much energy these cars need and how the electric land vehicle hasn’t yet spread to other countries. Even though the idea of a flying car is appealing, we are still a long way from being able to create one.
