Malaysia’s Entrepreneur Development Minister told reporters on Aug. 20, 2019 that works to construct the country’s first flying car was 85 percent complete.

Built in Japan

According to the minister Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof, the prototype is currently being constructed in a Malaysian company situated in Japan.

The minister, who is attending the Aviation Conference in Japan in September, said he hopes to “get to see the almost complete (flying) car”.

Completion by 2019

According to the report by Malay Mail, the flying car will be brought back to Malaysia by the end of the year.

When asked if the flying car was to be launched by 2019, the minister replied that it would depend on Malaysia’s ecosystem for flying cars.

“Flying car is a private initiative. We need to create the (flying car) industry in Malaysia. Having said that, it needs to be regulated,” he said.

It was reported that a Malaysian company listed on the New York Stock Exchange has been developing the prototype.
