NAIAS legitimises air mobility’s place in automotive

The North American International Auto Show introduced the Air Mobility Experience this year. Megan Lampinen takes a closer look

Auto shows continue to evolve as cars give way to mobility ecosystems. As a case in point, this year’s North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) introduced the Air Mobility Experience, a glimpse into the future of transport within the third dimension. With flight demonstrations and displays, the showcase shone a spotlight on the nascent market for electrical vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), hoverbikes, hoverboards and jet suits. It’s a radical departure from the traditional motor show bread and butter, but at the same time reflects the evolution of the transport industry.
