Terrafugia’s top speed isn’t too high, but if the plug is set, it can be faster than any normal car.In recent years, several companies have announced that they have made the “world’s first flying car,” but then the vast majority of these projects have disappeared nicely silently in the sink. Many have also predicted this fate for the Terrafugia Transition, the first version of which was unveiled back in 2010, but this winged car appears to be coming to market soon.
The flying car, developed by Geely of China, which also owns the Swedish Volvo brand, can now be placed with orders, and the manufacturer promises that the first copies will be available to customers in 2019. The price tag will read about $ 280,000.
A two-person hybrid car can be converted into an aircraft in less than a minute. Equipped with a four-cylinder turbo engine, the Terrafugia Transition has a maximum flight speed of 160 km / h and a range of approximately 640 kilometers. Arriving at the height of the manufacturer in 2025, the next model is promised to be able to take off and land.
