The novelty is one of the development initiatives of “giant drones” from various companies, whose participants are also a startup developed in partnership with Uber with Amber.

In GM’s case, the vertical take-off aircraft would have only one seat, and it has a displacement system based on eight engines supplied by the electrical energy stored in the battery.

According to the company, this type of vehicle is “the key to GM’s vision for a multimodal future”. The information is from the newspaper Folha DS Paulo.

GM has emphasized a future for electric vehicles, where it will compete with Tesla by Elon Musk, currently the world’s most valuable automaker due to capitalization on the US Stock Exchange.

GM also announced a logo change, the first since 1938: more minimal, now the brand highlights its new orientation towards an electrified future.
