There will be a someday when we will see a traffic jam in the sky. Yes, what you heard is right. The flying car, ‘The Transition’ car or plane prototype vehicle is recently launched at New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City along with other hottest cars like Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Prius C, Lincoln MKZ, Nissan Altima, McLaren MP4-12C, and more – which you will be made available soon in showrooms.
The Flying car ‘The Transition’ made by Terrafugia Inc., based in Woburn, MA, is a growing aerospace company founded by pilots and engineers from MIT and supported by a world-class network of advisors and private investors. “The successful first flight of this Production Prototype Transition® marks a critical move toward initial production and first delivery,” said COO Anna Mracek Dietrich.
The Flying car ‘The Transition’, weighs 970 lbs (440 kg) and has automated electromechanical folding wings, which runs on gasoline and can fly in the air for around 115 miles per hour, 185 km/h with a range of around 425 miles and also gives 35 mpg (6.7L/100km) mileage on road. The flying car will cost about $279,000 – which can be ordered with a refundable $10,000 airframe reservation. More specifications about this Transition can be found on their official website – Terrafugia – Transition® the Roadable Light-Sport Aircraft: The Vehicle.
As many futuristic vehicles failed to drive in the success route, will have to wait and see whether this Flying Car will make history.
Let’s wish Terrafugia Inc. all good luck on their launch – hard work will always pay off.
