The SureFly two-person drone taxi will make its maiden flight at CES 2018. (Digital Trends, 11/20/2017)
The futuristic carbon fiber SureFly vehicle was first shown off earlier this year at the Paris Air Show. Following its (weather permitting) voyage at CES, it will be on display at the event. It can carry up to 400 pounds, driven by eight separate propellers, and is powered by a hybrid system combining gas combustion engine and parallel battery pack.
Early versions of the craft will reportedly be user piloted, but an autonomous version isn’t out of the question for the future.
Workhorse hopes to make the SureFly available for less than $200,000.
