Flying Cars That Are Available Today
Ages back in the early 18th and 19th century everyone thought that there would be a cure for cancer, civilisations on the moon and flying supercars everywhere on the sky by the year 2020.
But with only a few months away from 2020 the humans of the 21st century are here watching videos of cats and snowboarding squirrels on the internet without even a clue of what a flying car looks like.
But it seems like flying cars or so-called Aeromobiles are on their way moving from fiction to reality. So let’s take a peek into the future about the vehicles that can fly which are expected to hit the market by 2020.
1. PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Model Flying Car
Though there are rumors about flying taxies that will be arriving in the market by 2020, only a few companies have been capable of doing it, and the rest of the birdies are still being tested.
PAL-V has taken a huge leap further than others and has started the pre-sales of its Liberty pioneer model flying car, and they are expected to be delivered by the end of 2018.
This is a limited edition where only 90 cars are sold worldwide. It includes some features such as dual controls, power heating and EFIS.
The interior of this little flying beast is handcrafted using the finest quality materials and the Italian design, and exclusive pioneer colours make the world’s first ever flying car a real beauty.
2. Aeromobil Flying Car
Aeromobil announced that the vehicle is available for pre-orders back in 2017 and the first deliveries for this Aeromobil flying car will be done by the mid of 2020.
This carries the features of both a supercar and an aeroplane where the car can transform into an aircraft with just less than 3 FREAKING MINUTES!
Though the maximum weight it can carry is 960 kg, the usable load is only about 240 kg. The top speed of this little birdie is 160 kph, and it can reach a speed of 100 Kph within 10 seconds. It uses 95 RON Gasoline to power it up, and the fuel capacity is 90 litres.
Furthermore, it features some safety options like the Airframe Parachute system, pyrotechnic load limiting seat belts and airbags.
There are only about 500 of these Aeromobil flying cars are available for commercial purchase, and it comes with a hot price tag of approximately $1.28-$1.6 million.
Bringing the looks of a mini alien spaceship this Terrafugia-X flying car is brought to you with a new dimension of freedom.
This is designed by Volvo’s parent company Geely and expects to conquer the heavens by 2019.
The TF-X won’t need any airports for landing or takeoffs, and it can drive on all roads and highways just as other regular cars offering the convenience of door-to-door transportation for its users.
With a range of 500 miles and a cruise speed of 200 mph, it is capable of taking off or landing vertically from a level clearing of minimum 100 feet in diameter.
The engine fuel of this TF-X is unleaded automotive gasoline, and it will fit any single car garage or parking space.
Experts in the industry state that this will be arriving with a price label of around $252,000 and will probably be one of the best personal flying cars in the world.
4. Lilium Flying Car
This flying car is relatively a bit larger than the other cars we mentioned in the list, yet this is the world’s first ever and the only all-electric flying car.
Lilium flying car was tested in 2017 at Germany, and it was piloted remotely, and the operators have stated that their first human-crewed flight will be arranged within a few months.
This 2-seater flying car is motorised by 36 separate jet engines built on its 10-meter long wings via 12 movable flaps.
This all-electric Lilium jet consumes approximately about 90% less energy than other drone-style aircraft making it capable of attaining a range of 300 km with a maximum cruising speed of 300 km/h.
Over To You
With all these cool flying supercars about to dominate the blues within just five or six months, it isn’t false if I say that the world is evolving faster than we think.
So if you are a futurist waiting for the day for flying cars to be moving here and there in the sky, then I should mention that that day is not so far.
Today I brought you a list of flying vehicles that you can buy today and almost all of them are already available for pre-orders. Hope you enjoyed the post and don’t forget to share this with your friends!
