Flying car: The vehicle is fully electric and can speed up to 200 miles per hour on public roads.
The company Alef Aeronautics has developed a flying car, which is already available for 300,000 dollars per unit. This innovative electric vehicle has obtained legal approval for flight testing.
As reported by Fox Business, the vehicle is fully electric and can reach speeds of up to 321 kilometers per hour on public roads.
It also can take off vertically and fly up to 177 kilometers of autonomy. They highlight its ability to avoid traffic, fly in any direction and offer a panoramic view of more than 180 degrees for a safe and pleasant flight.
An FAA spokesperson informed Fox Business that a Special Certificate of Airworthiness was issued for the Armada Model Zero aircraft on June 12, 2023.
This certificate allows limited aircraft use for exhibition, research, and development purposes.
The Californian company presented the car for the first time in October last year and claims to have received a considerable number of advance orders from both individuals and companies.
Alef CEO Jim Dukhovny, who co-founded the company in 2015 along with Constantine Kisly, Pavel Markin, and Oleg Petrovwere, expressed his enthusiasm for the FAA certification, according to a statement.
According to the website, Dukhovny and the co-founders were inspired to create a flying car in 2015 when they realized it was the same year Marty McFly was driving one in the movie “Back to the Future II.”
The flying car is already available for reservation on the company’s website. The vehicle will retail for around $300,000. Interested customers can deposit $150 to the waiting list or $1,500 to get priority in the delivery queue.
