We would have them because we should have auto pilot and also it would cause less deaths in wrecks

Hovercraft have already been invented.
The larger ones have been used to transport great numbers of people and cars across seas - before the Channel Tunnel it was possible to cross from England to France on one.
The smaller ones are ideal for travelling over varied terrain, such as swampland; areas of water; and rock-strewn land, such as deserts. They tend to be a little problematic going though forests; areas with large rocks; and, indeed, anything one can neither drive a speedboat across nor a tank through.
They use a HELL of a lot of fuel. Basically, they drive like a car, but "fly" kind of like a helicopter (any engineers reading this will be confused/bemused, but I mean they effectively use a "big fan" to prevent them from hitting the ground), so require a greater amount of energy than an equivalent 4-wheeled vehicle. The "big fan" keeps them off the ground, they still need a reasonably sized engine to move them forwards (or backwards, for that matter).
I believe they are still used by the military in some countries for accessing otherwise inaccessible places.
IMHO better to concentrate on: electric-powered conventional vehicles, canals and electric barges, solar-powered trains.
Or noahwd18, do you mean we should invent anti-gravity vehicles? Like the hoverboards in Back To The Future, or the taxis in The Fifth Element? Once we've cracked anti-gravity, that'd be doable!!!
