Hyundai Announces Miami Will Be The ‘Model’ City For Its Supernal Electric Air Vehicles

Supernal, an electric air vehicle service planned by Hyundai, announced it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Miami.

Supernal is calling its new service advanced air mobility.

In a statement, Supernal CEO and Hyundai Motor Group said the agreement would establish Miami as a model for the service, which it hopes to expand to other cities.

The agreement with Miami is the first for the company worldwide.

As part of the agreement, Supernal will work with Miami to develop polices to enable the service.

The company will work with Miami to identify and fill gaps in the local transportation system. The air taxi system will also be integrated with existing services including Metrorail, Metrobus and Metromover, among other systems.

The electric air vehicles will run both inter and intra-city, and is said to reduce carbon emissions.

Supernal plans to launch its first commercial flight in 2028.

Miami has been announced as the launch market for multiple flying vehicle companies. Other names that have announced Miami as their launch market include Archer and Lilium.

Bro other than us the majority of people dont care, they will sit in a ride share in traffic before even using the existing mass transit that is many times near their destination.

That’s the natives…there are a lot of people coming here from cities which operate differently. So long as policing is done to ensure safety, transit can work well. You can see what happens when crime is allowed to fester, though. NYC has damaged its public transit brand badly in the past few years.

Why do I want to take a bus, thats going in the same space as my ride share, going more slowly making stops, with less comfort, and more risk of being a target for crime?

Mass transit works when it becomes an alternative to traffic, not just a cheaper one.

Apart from the rules and regs, I’m sure the City of Miami won’t have anything to do with it.
It is great that the City of Miami is entertaining the idea an NOT getting in the way.

The private entrepreneur’s will do a great job making transportation efficient.

🤣🤣🤣 they can not come up with an integrated, functional system using what’s already there but in 2028 flying cars will do that.

Bring the metro rail orange line to the beach there’s a connection to the airport already in downtown Miami. That will be a game changer. Not some flying vehicle for bankers and the super wealthy.

This. Miami is just a good testing ground ever since California would rather focus on the latest iPhone and climate change, while forgetting the fact the latest iPhones are made in Chinese factories creating more pollution than their Kombucha and avocado toast-fueled brains could comprehend.

Yes – that is the idea.
JOBY partnered with Uber for ride share and Toyota for manufacturing production. This is real. The technology has been proven in the Military. JOBY, a now public company has partnered with a South Korean company to start service in South Korea. This is real. They use electric engines, and the propellers are designed to slice in the air with no noise. They are quiet.
