At CES 2018 one of the major trends was vehicle technology and CES 2019 will be no different as more companies and startups unveil their latest innovations. Announced today, NFT Inc., a Silicon Valley developer of autonomous commuter transportation solutions, will present the concept of their state of the art 2 or 4-seater eVTOL (electric Vertical Landing & Takeoff) at CES 2019 Eureka Park (Booth 51701).
The NFT Inc. eVTOL is an “affordable” autonomous commuter transportation solution designed to drive like a family car, flies autonomously and for door-to-door commuting. One has to wonder what is the affordable price range and when will the concept come to market? I suppose we will find out at CES 2019!
Here is what makes NFT’s eVTOL different from other autonomous commuter transportation solutions:
- Fly and Drive Door-to-Door eVTOL with target of 500 km autonomous flight and 100km drive
- Easily parks and charges in a garage or on-street parking, no heliport or special airstrip needed
- Enables people to live outside a major city and have a short, convenient door-to-door commute to work
Per NFT, their goal is to drastically reduce transit congestion in and out of urban areas and turn daily door-to-door commutes into an easy, stress-free experience, leading to reduced environmental impact and a higher quality of life in mega-cities. The manufacturing model for the NFT drive and fly vehicle, which bridges automotive and aviation, will enable it to be priced in the range of a family car, making autonomous commuting an affordable reality.
I will be covering CES 2019 and my favorite area to visit is Eureka Park as it has some of the most innovative technology so I will be checking out the eVTOL live. I haven’t seen any pictures online of the final design, therefore, this will be a CES 2019 exclusive. We aren’t sure how much they will unveil at CES but whatever concept pictures or displays I will capture while there. Stay tuned Hi-Tech Chic Fans, CES 2019 is just around the corner!
