The Geely concern, which owns the brands Volvo, Polestar and Lotus, has decided to build a plant for the production of flying cars from the American startup Terrafugia. It was bought by a Chinese company in 2017, and since then, the Americans have refined the design of the Transition model, first shown 13 years ago.

  • A tender has now been announced to find a contractor who will build a plant in Wuhan, China's Hubei province, with a total area of ​​182,504 square meters. The construction of the enterprise should begin on October 30, 2019 and be completed in 12 months.
  • Double TerrafugiTransition made its first flight in 2009. It is equipped with a hybrid setup consisting of a 100-horsepower gasoline engine and an electric motor. It develops 185 km / h in the air (105 km / h on the ground) and can fly over 644 kilometers.

  • Since 2013, a more powerful model TF-X with a different appearance has been in development, which should cover 800 kilometers by air at speeds up to 320 km / h. Both models are capable of driving on normal roads, and they are allowed to take off only from airports.
  • Geely will announce the cost of the Terrafugi flying car by the end of 2020 - when the model goes into series production.
