Hyundai partners with Uber Air for flying cars

Your Uber ride may be airborne one day-and its likely to be a Hyundai.

It's the first carmaker to join Uber and help make its so-called Air Taxis a reality.

If successful, these electric, flying cars - could ease traffic jams and take off on demand.

That's according to Hyundai's Jai-won Shin.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JAIWON SHIN, HYUNDAI'S HEAD OF URBAN AIR MOBILITY, SAYING: "We will be able to fly on demand.

Just imagine that, rather than fitting our lives around an airline's schedule.

I like to call this new era an era of 'liberation from gridlock' and the 'democratization of flight'.

Hyundai unveiled its concept air taxi on Monday (January 6) at this years' Consumer Electronics Show.

The SA-1 is expected to fly trips of up to 60 miles (100 km) and up to 180 miles per hour - and carry up to four passengers with a pilot.

It's part of the wider race to launch flying cars - Germany's Daimler, Japan's Toyota and others are already pouring money into startups.

Uber says they aim to launch Uber Air by 2023 - But Hyundai is more conservative, and has set the goal for 2028.
