It was reported in Car News China on June 3, 2022 that XPeng has made an unnamed new flying car. The information was revealed to the world due to XPeng's Chinese patent applications. The VTOL flying and roadable vehicle is apparently a sixth generation flying car.
https://carnewschina.com/2022/06/03/xpeng-new-flying-car-patent-images-leaked/ On June 25, 2022, it was reported the flying car was doing secret test runs on Chongqing roads (a municipality of southwest China).

The XPeng unnamed car is a VTOL aircraft and roadable vehicle which most likely holds two passengers based on a test car seen on the roads in China. The initial pictures of the car show what looks like a roof cargo carrier which would hold the propellers or rotorblades. No specifications have been released by the company as of August 2022 and the power source for the vehicle has not been revealed but most contemporary flying cars have a hybrid-electric power source.

In the recent past, XPeng reported it will launch its flying car in 2024 with a cost approximately ¥1,000,000.00 RMB ($150,000.00 USD).
