World premiered Pop.Up Next drone, that will pick you up and drop you off anywhere, could be with us within the next six years.
Audi, Italdesign and Airbus unveil Pop.Up Next, the first modular, fully electric drone, a part-car, part-drone vehicle without driver, displayed at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show.
A trailblazing modular ground and air passenger concept vehicle system to relieve the traffic congestion in megacities of the future.
The successor to last year’s original Pop.Up concept, the two-seat modular ground and air passenger vehicle system, can drive autonomously on the highway and rise vertically.
The monocoque carbon-fibre cocoon measures 2.6 meters, 1.4 meters high and 1.5 meters wide. It transforms itself into a city car.
Wherever you are, you can call for a vertical take-off and landing drone, to pick you up, and when you reach you destination, Pop.Up travel back to recharge stations.
Dr. Bernd Martens, Audi Board Member for Procurement and President of Italdesign, commented:
“Creativity is needed where new mobility concepts for cities and people’s diverse needs are concerned. Italdesign is an incubator for innovative technologies and radical prototyping. Pop.Up Next is an ambitious vision that could permanently change our urban life in the future.”
