XPeng flying over rivers

For many years, people have dreamed of flying cars, thinking they were just stories and ultimately impossible – until the XPeng X2 came along.

Now, it seems like the future is here.

XPeng – a company from China – has worked hard to turn this dream into reality.

They made a flying car called X2, and now they’re testing it.

In a recent video uploaded on Instagram by the official page of XPeng, the X2 can be seen flying at a decent altitude and crossing various rivers at an amazing speed.

It looks like a big drone but it’s actually a compact car on super-cool airborne adventures.

The X2 isn’t your typical car – obviously – it’s a futuristic marvel designed to revolutionize urban transportation.

With its sleek teardrop-shaped design and carbon fiber structure, it’s both lightweight and environmentally friendly.

Plus, it can seat two passengers comfortably, making it perfect for short city journeys or sightseeing adventures.

What’s even more remarkable is that the X2 can fly autonomously, meaning it doesn’t need a human pilot to operate.

This autonomous mode ensures safe and easy flying, with simple controls for passengers to enjoy the ride.

Powered by batteries and equipped with eight propellers and electric motors, the X2 can reach speeds of up to 130 km/h and stay airborne for 35 minutes.

It cruises at altitudes ranging from 300 to 500 meters, offering a unique perspective of the world below.

But what about safety? Xpeng has that covered too.

The X2 comes with Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), which provides an added layer of security in case of motor or propeller failure.

It also features spherical environment detection, real-time video monitoring, and an emergency parachute for added peace of mind.

In addition to crossing rivers, the X2 has been tested flying above mountains and simply exploring the city streets from above.

It truly looks like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s very much a reality thanks to XPeng’s innovation and dedication.

So, could flying cars or cars that can turn into submarines soon become a common sight in our skies?

With advancements like the XPeng X2, it certainly seems possible.
