Cartivator, a group of about 30 engineers, including some young Toyota, began to develop from 2014 a flying car named "SkyDrive".

Cartivator head Tsubasa Nakamura said that although the car is still at an early stage of development, the team expects to carry out the first manned flight around the end of 2018.

On Saturday, the team presented an original model, which was able to make a flight for a few seconds. Nakamura said the model needs more stability so the prototype is able to fly away and high enough to reach the Olympic flame.

Cartivator engineers aim to build the smallest vehicle in the world, which can be used in small urban areas, and they hope to commercialize this car in 2025.

Companies around the world are competing to develop the first vertical takeoff and landing flying car. Uber Technologies Inc has already announced plans to develop one flying taxis in 2020 in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, and . Η ομάδα της Airbus επίσης εργάζεται για την ανάπτυξη ιπτάμενου αυτοκινήτου.

In a nutshell, it is not long before we see, apart from unmanned conventional cars on the streets, unmanned flying vehicles in the air. Problems that arise and concern the legislative provision of flights over cities are believed to be easily solved for the benefit of large companies.
