The VTOL drone doesn’t currently have a name but will be the first time Cadillac and GM explore the passenger drone market. The example used in the presentation is that you’ve been working at the office and need to make your way to a meeting quickly.

In GM’s vision, there is a Vertiport on the roof of your office building where a drone is waiting for you. You hop inside the drone, and it takes you to the Vertiport closest to the meeting location. From there, an autonomous vehicle meets you at the landing pad and takes you to the meeting.

The presentation mentioned that the VTOL drone uses a 90 kV motor to power the four rotors and is equipped with air-to-air and air-to-ground communications. As this is just a concept, changes will likely be made to the look and specs of the VTOL, so take these with a grain of salt./REC Anything
