Traveler X2: flying car or quadrocopter?

The Traveler X2 from Xpeng presented as a "5th Generation Flying Car", that is, as a flying car. In reality, however, according to the pictures, it is a quadrocopter with runners. The aircraft was developed by the Xpeng subsidiary HT Aero. The new version has radar and lidar sensors as well as an autopilot function with automatic obstacle avoidance and a parachute for emergencies.

In the following video, in addition to renderings of the closed two-seater X2, you can also see an open single-seat quadrocopter (possibly an earlier version of the X2, which is apparently already capable of real flight) and also a Voyager X1, another single-seat quadrocopter:

The 4.71 meter long X2 is only 1.36 meters high. The side arms that carry the four twin propellers can be folded back and forth, reducing the width from 4.38 to 1.76 meters. By using carbon, the weight is only 560 kilograms, the maximum take-off weight is 760 kilograms – the payload of the two-seater is 200 kilograms. The cruising speed is 130 km / h and the X2 can fly for 35 minutes at an altitude of 1,000 meters until the batteries are empty.
