INTEGRATING THE SPEED OF AVIATION WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF DRIVING A CAR, THE TF-X™ WILL REVOLUTIONIZE PERSONAL TRANSPORTATION.
Terrafugia is working every day to bring real flying cars that drive and fly to market. The company have already built and flown two fully functional prototypes, and work is currently underway on a conforming prototype for production.
Integrating the speed of aviation with the convenience of driving a car, the TF-X™ will revolutionize personal transportation. The TF-X™ won’t require an airport for takeoff and landing, and it will drive on all roads and highways - providing the convenience of true door-to-door transportation.
Terrafugia engineers developed one-tenth scale prototypes of the wing and applied loads to both the central wing structure and the side motor pods to test its performance at progressively higher loads. The wing maintained structural integrity at over five times the maximum predicted loads, validating the wing design.
Terrafugia’s vision for the future, the TF-X™ is a plug-in hybrid electric flying car with semi-autonomous flight and vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. Estimated to enter production in 8-12 years, the TF-X™ will create a new dimension of personal freedom.
Range: 500 miles (800 km)
Cruise Speed: 200 mph (320 km/h)
Engine Fuel: Unleaded automotive gasoline
Electric Motor Pods: 1 MW of power
Dimensions: The TF-X™ will fit in a single car garage or standard parking space.
Takeoff and Landing: The TF-X™ will be able to take off and land vertically from a level clearing of at least 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter.
Certification: Flying the TF-X™ will require substantially less training time than a traditional pilot’s license or sport pilot certificate. Driving the TF-X™ will require a standard US driver’s license.
Pricing: The price will be consistent with high-end luxury cars. More specific pricing information will become available as the company progress in the development of the TF-X™ program.
Development of the TF-X™ is expected to last many years. The Transition®, will be delivered long before the TF-X™ is ready, and Transition® owners will be given the option to purchase the TF-X™ before the general public.
If you’re interested in owning one of the world’s first practical flying cars, you can reserve the Transition® even today.
