Check out this flying car! It was unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show by Chinese company Xpeng, which already makes electric cars and is seen as a rival to Tesla.

The Heitech flying vehicle can carry two people at an altitude of five to 25 meters. It looks like a human-carrying drone. Xpeng says that it has undergone over 10,000 tests so far.

Xpeng is not the only company working on electric flying cars. According to CNBC, “Companies including Hyundai, German start-up Lilium, and China-based Ehang are developing flying vehicles that can carry individuals.” A Chinese company named Geely, which also owns Volvo, is also working on what they call an “air taxi.”
