Hyundai’s flying taxi to make its inaugural flight in 2028

Supernal’s first production flying vehicle will be electric-powered with autonomous capabilities and will be able to accommodate 4 or 5 passengers.

Hyundai Motor Group has created a new company called ‘Supernal’. The new firm has been formed to spearhead the brand’s Urban Air Mobility vision.

The company will be working on a range of flying taxis, ranging from 4 or 5-seater, autonomous and electric vertical take-off & landing (e-VTOL) aircrafts. The aircrafts will be used for commercial purposes as urban flying taxis with the inaugural flight scheduled for 2028.

Hyundai also stated that Supernal’s first production flying vehicle will be electric-powered with autonomous capabilities and will be able to accommodate 4 or 5 passengers.

The Korean brand already showcased their first e-VTOL, the SA-1 during the CES event last year. Alongside the development of the flying vehicle, Supernal is also said to be working with private and public shareholders to bring Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) technology to the market, with public acceptance beginning to grow from 2030 onwards.
