Bell Partners With Uber To Achieve The Taxi Of The Future at CES 2019

Uber has gained world wide recognition since it’s launch. There have been many trying to copy the idea but Uber still remains the top reference. The fact that one doesn’t need to own a car to be driven to anywhere is quite exciting. The number of people this technology has saved is amazing. I have a family member that refuses to buy a car because of how convenient Uber is. Recently, they partnered with Bell to come up with a ‘flying car’.

A lot of people using Uber are in it for the comfort. These other copycat companies that have come along do not understand this concept. They simply buy the cheapest cars and hire cheap labor and wait for good results. Well, it’s a good thing they are cheaper than Uber itself.

In CES 2019, Uber partnered with Bell to unveil a helicopter/taxi. It’s called the Bell Nexus. The machine will be able to fly and drop customers anywhere on the map. The combination of resources by the two companies is quite brilliant. Such ideas are what grow to become revolutionary steps towards the future. Furthermore, we have waited long enough for flying cars. Although the vehicle is more of a helicopter at the moment. The Bell Nexus has room for five people and a maximum weight capacity of 600 pounds.

Being the first of it’s kind, people aren’t expecting a lot. The present specifications seem more than what users imagined possible. Reports say that Uber is planning to roll out the service by 2023. Users were quite amazed by this development since no one had seen it coming. However, such an exploit demands that safety be the first priority above all else.

The Bell Nexus stylish design was among the highlights at the CES 2019. No other vehicles at the conference could fly so… I can’t imagine how much one ride would cost. The price for production will be quite high meaning Uber will want to maximize on profits. This spells doom for the average consumer. But why do I need a Uber helicopter when I can ride the bus that’s much cheaper? Well, it’s a matter of preference.
