Best transportation gadgets to buy in 2020
From autonomous air taxis to off-road vehicles of the future, the best transportation gadgets of 2020 are yet to come. But until we get there, let's just take a look at all those personal vehicles and e-scooters that you can easily buy for yourselves in 2020.
When you think of the future of transportation, flying cars and jetpack concepts come to our minds at first. But let’s face it, it’s still a far-fetched concept as of now. However, automobile manufacturers haven’t been too far off in turning a part of these futuristic concepts into a reality. In fact, earlier this month, Skyryse demonstrated tech that could power self-driving taxis in the near future. Not so long ago, Renault’s car of the future unveiled in London was considered to go for a 2020 launch. With that said, we can easily vouch for the best transportation gadgets of 2020 to be unique and totally out of the box.
Considering the fact that CES 2020 is almost here with autonomous vehicle enhancements being one of the key themes, it’s predicted that we are going to see some great advancements in automobile tech starting next month. Segway-Ninebot has also announced its new e-scooter and moped range prior to CES 2019 along with the Audi AI: TRAIL quattro which was announced earlier this year.
All these futuristic automobile concepts and trends have one thing in common – smart technology! But before you prep yourself for all that advanced tech, we’d like to show you some of the best transportation gadgets that you can buy for everyday use in 2020. From personal vehicles to e-scooters, this list has some of the coolest examples we’ve seen so far.
