The Indian government is reportedly considering installing a flying transmission system for the first time in a new generation of electric karts.
The proposal was first spotted by a user on the Indian government’s website, where it was suggested that a flying electric karter could be used for track day in a bid to help reduce air pollution.
The plan is said to include both air conditioning and electronic monitoring.
Air pollution in India is so bad that a pilot needs to wear a mask, which can also be used to keep an eye on the kart’s environment, and a driver’s goggles.
However, flying electric vehicles (EVs) can avoid the need for masking.
The Indian government has said that the flying transmission would be able to be installed in new electric karters in 2020, and would be used only in the country’s urban areas.
The transmission system is expected to be able move the car along at a speed of 30 kilometres per hour (19 miles per hour), and could be deployed at all time intervals.
The plan has been seen as a step towards tackling air pollution and tackling road congestion, and is seen as being part of the government’s efforts to curb traffic and road safety.
