Toyota will produce aircraft
A flying taxi may seem like something fantastic, but the investment in this direction is such that such vehicles will soon become a reality.
For example, Toyota decided to invest $ 349 million in startup Joby Aviation. In total, Joby in the last round of financing attracted 590 million.
The startup is currently working on an electric aircraft capable of flying at a speed of 320 km / h and a range of 240 km. According to the company, its device will be 100 times quieter than a conventional aircraft during take-off and landing and almost silent in flight.
Judging by the press release, within the framework of the cooperation, Toyota will eventually be engaged in the production of aircraft, and will also help Joby with quality control.
