Unlike Ideal and Weilai, Xiaopeng Motors, one of the “new car-making forces”, not only manufactures electric vehicles, but also gets involved in the future transportation of flying cars. Following Xiaopeng Huitian’s first demonstration of operating a flying car with a combination of a steering wheel and a handle earlier this month, He Xiaopeng shared more progress on its flying car today.

At present, the latest product of Xiaopeng Flying Car is “Lover X2”. Today, He Xiaopeng posted a video of Xiaopeng Huitian X2 doing 0-100 acceleration tests, emergency braking, and large maneuvers. He Xiaopeng said that it “controls accurately, converges very crisply, and is very follow-up. You can fight where you want, and you can play through it.” machine feeling.”
Judging from the video, Xiaopeng Huitian X2 does have strong maneuverability and is more flexible than traditional helicopters. Flying cars may not be far away from us.

It is reported that the Traveler X2 was officially launched in November 2020, and will successfully make its first flight in June 2021. It adopts a closed cockpit, and the entire fuselage adopts a carbon fiber structure. The empty aircraft weighs 560 kg with batteries and can carry 2 passengers. The maximum load 200 kg. The X2 is powered by pure electric power, with a battery life of up to 35 minutes. The designed flight altitude is below 1000 meters, which is suitable for low-altitude flight in future cities. During the flight, the maximum flight speed is 130 kilometers per hour. At the same time, the aircraft has the capability of autonomous flight path planning. Through multiple sensors, the aircraft can realize ground monitoring, environmental perception without dead ends, self-service return and landing, and two-way real-time communication over 100 kilometers.
IT House learned that in October last year, Xiaopeng Huitian, a flying car company under Xpeng Motors, received the largest single financing of US$500 million in the field of low-altitude manned aircraft equipment production in Asia so far, and officially announced that it will have a 2024 annual volume.
