A CHINESE company has confirmed its flying car, which is able to hover past traffic, will be available soon.
Xpeng AeroHT has successfully completed first test flights for its latest flying car the X3.
The X3 is an electric car with fold-away rotors that is driven just like any other car on the ground but is also controlled with its steering wheel in the air.
The company says the car will be on sale in 2024 and will end up costing around £122,000.
