On Tuesday, General Motors unveiled plans to mass-produce flying vehicles. GM said a single-passenger flying Cadillac could become reality over the next few years.

“We are preparing for a world where advances in electric and autonomous technology make personal air travel possible,” Michael Simcoe, Vice President of Global Design at GM said.

The four-rotor vehicle would be able to take-off and land on rooftops, as well as develop in air speed of up to 55 miles per hour.

“The vertical take-off and landing drone, or Vertile, is GM’s first foray into aerial mobility,” Simcoe stated. “It is a concept designed for the moment when time is of essence and convenience is everything. You’ve been at the office and now you need to get to a meeting across town, the Vertile meets you on the roof and drops you at the Vertiport closest to your destination.”
