The Japanese government is working on founding an industry consortium to realise electrified flying car technology. A total of 21 companies are said to be involved, including Uber, Airbus and Boeing.

Japan is looking to take a step ahead in terms of airborne vehicle technology ahead of other nations. Specifically, the ministry for commerce is planning to prepare the skies above the island nation for flying cars in the next decade. The ministry is working on establishing appropriate regulations and plans to support the consortium in other ways as well. Tomorrow, representatives from the involved actors will meet in order to begin working on a road map with specific goals.

Minister of Commerce Hiroshige Seko said in a press statement that flying cars would take pressure off the roads, as well as making transport to other islands or during natural disasters easier. They would also find potential use for tourism.
