New eVTOL Aircraft Cabin Concept from Hyundai Motor Group’s Supernal
Clean Technica | 07/21/2022
Urban electric aircraft have been a fun topic for several years, yet we also don't really actually have any urban electric aircraft on the market. One day?

After all, automakers are in the business of making and selling millions of complex, heavily regulated, consumer vehicles. On that topic, news this week is that Hyundai Motor Group is more focused than ever on developing "commercial urban and regional air vehicles and surrounding market." The latter indicates that even if Hyundai Motor Group isn't developing the vehicles, it is developing components of the vehicles.
