French aircraft maker Airbus has unveiled a new high-flying car at the Geneva Motor Show.

The car-drone hybrid called Pop.Up is a modular, fully-electric, zero emission concept vehicle system designed to relieve traffic congestion in crowded cities.

Its multi-module design means passengers can take advantage of both ground and airspace.

The passenger capsule can connect to the four-rooted air transport module to whisk rushed commuters above busy roads and crowded areas.

Pop.Up uses an artificial intelligence system that builds user knowledge and manages travel complexity while offering alternative scenarios. Passengers can plan and book their journey using an app on their smart devices.
