The Detroit Auto Show in the United States, which had been suspended for more than two years due to the epidemic, was re-launched. As one of the top five auto shows in the world, the auto show attracted Ford, GM, Toyota, and many other car companies to participate. According to CCTV Finance reported yesterday, the world's first flying suspension bicycle, developed by the Japanese start-up AERWINS, made its debut at this auto show.
Dubbed the "XTurismo", the flying bike is built from a plethora of carbon fiber components and has two main and four auxiliary propellers. The XTurismo flying bike is 3.7 meters long and 2.4 meters wide, with speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour and a flight time of up to 40 minutes. The XTurismo flying bike is hybrid and weighs around 300kg with a maximum payload of 100kg.
At present, the XTurismo flying bike has been listed in Japan, and a smaller version will be sold in the United States. The pre-sale price of the car is about 777,000 US dollars or about 5.4 million yuan. Due to legal restrictions, XTurismo flying bikes are not currently road-ready. The CEO of AERWINS expressed the hope that the car can become an emergency rescue vehicle or a patrol car in the future to complete rescue tasks under extreme road conditions.
