Earlier this year, GM rolled out a Cadillac flying concept vehicle at CES 2021. They teased a four-rotor prototype dubbed the VTOL (vertical-take-off-and-landing). It is “designed for the moment when time is of the essence and convenience is everything,” said Michael Simcoe, GM’s vice president of global design. He also said the concept would use a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
