It might look as a bird or something from outer space at first or something out of a sci-fi movie based in a distant future, but in reality is just a vehicle about to be released through out most countries in the world in maybe about an year. The vehicle was one of the best things in the Greentech festival, an event in Berlin designed to showcase the technology and advancement in it.
“It’s not in 10 years’ time, it’s at the end of next year that it will be commercialized,” Rosberg tells CNN’s Supercharged.
The volocopter itself will be able to carry 2 peiople to a distance of 27km plus the vehicle will be Emission-free and will not be giving off any sound to that of the city. “Of course there are some challenges remaining but the most fascinating aspect of it: It’s not just for the rich and wealthy because once it goes autonomous, it will cost only as much as a taxi costs nowadays,” Rosberg explains.”So it will really be accessible to a lot of people and I think that’s the power of it.
The future of greentech is that it’s coming now! And it’s not a compromise anymore, it’s not like you need to forfeit something.”It’s cool, it’s sustainable, it’s most of the time even cheaper, so it’s here to stay and I really hope we all learn to embrace it because it’s very, very powerful and will have a great big impact.”
In places like Dubai, Singapore and Germany are the few places where the volocopter is going to be released. It’s just mind blowing as this is going to change or in other words revotunalize the way we move and it’s going to decongestant cities as well because we can quite easily use the airspace much more.”Taking off and landing vertically, the vehicle will offer a higher degree of safety”, the German Volocopter company says, “and will drop off and pick up passengers and swap batteries in ‘Volo-Hubs’ and ‘Volo-Ports.”
As like the amazing development of a drone, on which basis the volocopter is built, the company plans to change the batteries through robotic medium and plans to achieve the goal of transporting about 100,000 people by the next decade.
