CES 2019: Flying taxis: Uber partner reveals design

Uber got a step closer to on-demand aerial taxis this week, as partner company Bell Helicopter unveiled a new flying car design in Las Vegas. The scale model of a hybrid-electric aircraft, called Nexus, is being exhibited at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in the city until 11 January.

Uber said the Nexus represents “a major step in its Elevate initiative to create an on-demand Uber Air network”, and shows it is “on track for delivering the world’s first aerial rideshare network in the coming years”.
