Auto Company Maruti Suzuki Has made a big announcement. Now the company is going to enter air travel along with vehicles. According to a report in Times of India, Maruti will manufacture electric helicopters in collaboration with its Japanese subsidiary Suzuki. According to the information given by the company, the electric air helicopter being developed by Maruti will be larger than a drone but smaller than a conventional helicopter, which will have the capacity to carry at least three passengers including the pilot.

These air taxis will bring revolution in transportation

The aim of this move of Maruti is to initially enter the markets of Japan and America before expanding in India. It is believed that in the coming time, air taxis will take transportation to a new level. Just like Uber and Ola cars are doing right now, these air taxis could revolutionize transportation. Maruti is not only focusing on exploring the Indian market for sales but is also considering manufacturing in India to reduce manufacturing costs.

will be named skydrive

Maruti Suzuki Electric Air Copter will be named Skydrive. Equipped with 12 units of motors and rotors, it is expected to be showcased at the 2025 Osaka Expo in Japan. Initial sales focus will be on Japan and the US, but Maruti plans to eventually bring this technology to India through the ‘Make in India’ initiative. The report claims that with a take-off weight of 1.4 tonnes, the Air Copter will be about half the weight of a conventional helicopter. Due to its low weight, it can use building rooftops to take off and land. With this, the dream of Skydrive will be easily fulfilled for the common people also. Due to low cost, fair cost is expected to remain low.
