Hyundai teams up with British firm to build urban air mobility infrastructure
Hyundai Motor Co. will work with British firm Urban-Air Port to build urban air mobility (UAM) infrastructure and recharging stations and conduct maintenance and repair works.
The UAM is for handling takeoff and landings of future personal air vehicles (PAVs).
Hyundai has signed memorandums of understanding for UAM endeavors with two cities in the UK, including Coventry.
The South Korean company noted that while the focus on air mobility is mainly on flying vehicles, supporting infrastructure is incredibly important for the industry's growth.
It said that close cooperation with its British partner would allow Hyundai to establish critical air mobility foundations.
This year, Hyundai unveiled its vision for PAV and said it is planning to connect services for purpose-built vehicles and mobility hubs.
