Pop.Up Next

Pop.Up Next is a two-seater car that doubles as a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft by design and engineering company Italdesign in collaboration with Audi and Airbus.

Commuters simply ‘eject’ the futuristic VTOL section from the car base, which remains on the ground.

The vehicle is also fully electric, in line with global efforts to reduce the carbon emissions to zero by 2050.

The new design addresses both increasing city traffic and the environmental impact of transportation.
