No, this is not a UFO.

This is an air taxi.

Thirty-six electric turbines lift this prototype up into the air.

One set of batteries should keep this running for one hour, at a top speed of about 300 kilometers per hour.

The carbon taxi is scheduled to start operation in 2025.

Are you game to take a ride?
