The 4.0 model of AeroMobil is the company’s first commercially available vehicle featuring hundreds of improvements, both in design and in engineering, compared to the prototype unveiled two and half years ago.The team behind the newest AeroMobil, led by Juraj Vaculik, CEO and Douglas MacAndrew, CTO, built the vehicle in compliance with the existing regulatory frameworks for both cars and airplanes.
AeroMobil is completely integrated aircraft as well as a fully functioning four-wheeled car, powered by hybrid propulsion. By combining aero and car functionality in perfect harmony it heralds a new era in efficient and exciting travel, offering users an unparalleled choice of transport on the road or in the air.
It’s expected to sell for about $1.5M.The vehicle is 19′ 4″ long and 7′ 3″ when configured for driving, which gives it about the same footprint as a midsize pickup truck. It’s 28′ 11″ wide when the wings are extended for flying.
In flight, power will come from a custom 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine producing 300 hp.While on the road, the AeroMobil will use a dedicated electric front-wheel-drive motor with electronic differential.
AeroMobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distance trips and in areas with limited or missing road infrastructure.
