Airbus is currently pursuing "flying cars" - more accurately defined as Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircrafts that, like the name suggests, do not need a runway to operate because they can take off vertically.
Airbus' Silicon Valley arm, named A³, is working on an electric, single-passenger aircraft for urban transit as part of its Project Vahana. Separate from Vahana, Airbus is also building a flying taxi named CityAirbus.
