General Motors showed off a single-seater electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft during its keynote CES address on Tuesday.
Both vehicles are part of Cadillac’s Halo Portfolio and probably won’t be going into production anytime soon — or at all. Still, the concepts are meant to show off Cadillac’s (and, by extension, GM’s) design intentions for future products, as well as serving as an extravagant symbol of the brand’s manufacturing skills.
The VTOL concept looks like a more futuristic version of some of the air taxi prototypes that are under development right now. Simcoe called it GM’s “first foray into aerial mobility” — although it’s just a design exercise, and it’s unclear whether GM actually intends to pursue a commercialized version. (A spokesperson for the automaker declined to make any images available or provide additional details about both concepts.)
