Volocopter introduces its most powerful flying taxi yet

•, by Nick Lavars

The Volocopter is an all-electric aircraft its creators hope will one day lift two people at a time into the air over city centers, promising a clean, autonomous and fast form of travel that alleviates traffic and pollution. Now in its fourth generation, the latest Volocopter isn't a wild departure from anything we've seen previously, and its basic capabilities remain the same.

Aesthetically speaking, the VoloCity looks fairly similar to earlier versions, but with a more rounded exterior and fresh paint job. The company says the new aircraft is the most powerful it has produced, but will continue using the earlier models as part of its testing program. Having conducted a number of test flights in different locations, the next public outing for the Volocopter is planned for Singapore in the final quarter of the year.
