Japan: Flying cars in Japan soon to become a reality after the Japanese government aimed towards commencing the project and commercialise flying vehicles as early as the 2020s. The government has already partnered with the leading names in the automotive industry like Subaru, Uber and Boeing.
The government wants Japan to have a leading role when it comes to personal flying vehicles.
"Globally, there is a growing interest in what is called 'flying cars' that will enable such transportation services in the sky", the trade ministry said in a statement after the first meeting.
"Japan, too, aims to achieve speedier and more convenient transportation services for people and goods, while trying to create a new industry that can be competitive and profitable in world markets."
Subaru, Boeing and Uber will work in the field of their expertise i.e. working on the car part, working on the aviation technology to lift them up from the ground and commercialising the flying vehicles as a mode of transport, respectively.
