Audi Elevate

‚The flying car is the quintessential undelivered promise of the future.‘ - It is not until now that the utopia of a personal flying car or AAV (autonomous aerial vehicle) is within reach. 

The advancements of drone design have reached the point where we can now think of traveling on drones ourselves.  The rise of new automotive startups, the increasing maturity of autonomous driving systems and the improving range of electric drivetrains are shaking up the automotive industry and provide an opportunity to explore new ways of alternative mobility.  

This project aims for a completely personal mobility solution incorporating VTOL (vertical take off and landing) drone technology for an urban escape scenario - exploring remote nature places, or to travel airborne between destinations in busy polluted megacities, avoiding traffic congestion  and provide inexpensive, low altitude and emotional aircraft travel, unsing a safer and more efficient travel network, saving an extraordinary amount of time during rush-hours.

A new segment in the product lineup is being explored, thus placing the brand at the forefront of innovation acting as a halo product.

  • Industrial / Transportation Design graduate, grown up in Munich, born in Budapest. I‘m a multi-faceted, curious and fast-learning person with a strong aesthetic sense as well as with a deep interest in technical innovations and underlying strategical decisions. Also, I proved to be a strong team player in the past, when I was already able to use my multicultural background to my advantage while working in international environments, like at the advanced design department of BMW, and OXXID, a small industrial design consultancy. I am very passionate about design and many sources of inspiration such as architecture, fashion, concept art, aeronautics, photography, interior design, history.
