Hyundai, in a press release, informed that the miniature model put up till June 12 in the lobby of its headquarters serves to inspire employees by showing the company's vision for future mobility. As such, the UAM is shown with its rotors tilting, enabling vertical take-off and landing and rotating horizontally for flight. On the 'ground', PBVs can be seen running on the road, traveling around the Hub, becoming part of the building when connecting to the Hub’s docking station. The Hub is not only a space that connects UAM and PBVs, but also serves as a new concept for connecting people.
