KleinVision sells BMW engine-powered flying car tech to China

Slovakian company KleinVision has sold a geographically limited license for producing state-of-the-art certified flying car technology to the prominent Chinese company Hebei Jianxin Flying Car Technology. Finalized for an undisclosed amount, the deal marks a strategic move in the advancement of innovative mobility solutions.

This licensing agreement seems to be a significant move for both KleinVision and the Jianxin Group. With the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute certified flying cars in a specific geographical region, the Jianxin Group can utilize KleinVision’s cutting-edge technology to revolutionize transportation in China.

“We are pleased to announce the sale of the license for our certified flying car technology to the esteemed Chinese company,” stated Stefan Klein, Chairman of the Board at KleinVision. “This partnership represents a significant step in our mission to expand global access to revolutionary mobility solutions and drive progress in the industry,” added Anton Zajac, co-founder at KleinVision.

KleinVision is dedicated to driving innovation and forging strategic partnerships that push forward advancements in transportation technology. The recent collaboration with Hebei Jianxin is a perfect example of this commitment. Their shared vision of revolutionizing mobility on a global scale is truly inspiring.

This agreement is a significant milestone for KleinVision and reinforces its position as a leader in developing cutting-edge transportation solutions. The AirCar can transform from a road vehicle to a flying car in just a few minutes, and its successful flight testing is a testament to its advanced capabilities.

China is now expanding its focus on flying transportation solutions, following its success in the EV industry. Autoflight recently conducted a successful test flight of a passenger-carrying drone, and eHang received a safety certificate for their electric flying taxi. However, there are still challenges that need to be addressed, such as infrastructure, regulation, and public acceptance. But aviation consultant Steve Wright believes that these obstacles are temporary, and flying cars could become a game-changer in personal transportation.

The global efforts to regulate the artificial intelligence sector have brought up some new questions that need to be addressed. According to some experts, the West’s history might slow down the process of integrating these machines into existing categories. On the other hand, China might see this as an opportunity to take the lead, just like it did with electric cars.

The recent sale of the Slovakian AirCar has also raised questions about whether China can become a global leader in flying cars. However, some experts believe that the final product might be more mundane than the prototypes we see today, with long queues, baggage checks, and other procedures.
