Hyundai Tests Drone Delivery System, Will Make It Rain Cars
No one would deny that the car-buying process is tedious and arduous, but what unnecessarily complicates things even further is the vehicle shipment and delivery process. With two-day shipping becoming the norm thanks to online vendors services like Amazon Prime, waiting weeks for your new car to arrive and then having to go to a dealership to obtain it is ridiculous. If only technology allowed us to speed up the process…
Always one to take the initiative, Hyundai Motors UK has worked rigorously to meet customer demands and improve the delivery timeframe. The result? A ground-breaking system called Click to Fly.

Inspired by the feedback of one customer, Amelia Darhart, who used Hyundai’s Click to Buy online shopping platform, Hyundai Motors UK developed a means to utilize drone delivery. Better yet, the drones utilize Hyundai’s already-developed, hydrogen-based fuel cell technology. The result is Click to Fly, a delivery service that needs a mere four drones to deliver a full-size vehicle in a cardboard box in less than two hours.
That’s right, these drones can travel at speeds over 200 mph. Forget two-day delivery!
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Motor UK’s President and CEO, stated, “We are extremely proud to announce the launch of Click to Fly, a ground-breaking world first for the automotive industry…Innovation is at the core of everything we do at Hyundai and this is just the start of us offering exactly what our customers want, quickly and at an affordable price. Over the coming months we’ll be looking to add even more functionality to Click to Buy.”
Unfortunately, if you were interested in utilizing Hyundai’s Click to Fly service, the deadline is already passed. The delivery option was only available on Saturday, April 1st. The good news is that due to how believable everything is on the internet these days and how gullible people are, April Fools Day jokes are good all-year round–especially when they’re this well-executed.
