October 20, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

Back in 2010, the company Terrafugia introduced a prototype of a car capable of flying, and now a model called Transition has become available for pre-order, but the details are still unknown.

Terrafugia Transition is a model of a flying car developed by an American company, with the support of Chinese investments after going under the wing of Geely. The first production copies will begin to arrive to their customers only in 2019, and will be available only in the territory of America. Later, the market may expand.

While the company does not report any technical specifications. We only know the approximate cost of about 280,000 dollars, the maximum speed in the air up to 160 km / h, and a cruising range in flight up to 650 km. The engine runs on conventional automotive fuel.

Now the model has the status of a light aircraft, to control the vehicle, you must have a flight license. It is still unknown how transport behaves as a car, and whether Terrafugia Transition will be allowed on public roads is also unclear.

The design really resembles a small light aircraft with a double cabin. Transformation from car to plane takes place within one minute with the help of servos.
