  • Up in the air: GM unveils flying car concept at CES

The company unveiled the new concept vehicle in a video as a part of its virtual keynote presentation, which had Chief Executive Mary Barra reveal the futuristic flying auto along with a family friendly Cadillac electric shuttle.

ReutersTwo futuristic Cadillac concepts, an electric shuttle and an autonomous vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, are seen in a still image from video presented by General Motors (GM) at the 2021 CES show.

General Motors unveiled a futuristic flying Cadillac - a self-driving vehicle which carries the passenger above the streets and through the air.

A GM spokesperson confirmed to CNBC that the firm has designed models of both autonomous concepts, but used computer renderings during the presentation.

The conceptual design for the autonomous electric drone includes four rotors and a 90 kWh motor. "You've been at the office and now you need to get to a meeting across town, the Vertile meets you on the roof and drops you at the Vertiport closest to your destination". The first concept is a high-end, egg-shaped (or toaster-styled!) personal autonomous vehicle (PAV) that drives itself (think Westworld Season 3 vibes) and the second is a sleek single-seat, electric verticle takeoff and landing (eVTOL) creation straight out of Blade Runner.

Other automakers, including Toyota Motor, Hyundai Motor and Geely Automobile, have previously have shown concept aerial vehicles as part of their future planning.

GM's VP of Global Design, Michael Simcoe, explains that its goal is intended as "a social space for a group of friends or family to spend time together on their way to a destination". It features fore and aft sliding doors and a panoramic glass roof.

'This is a special moment for General Motors as we reimagine the future of personal transportation for the next five years and beyond'.
