PAL-V Begins Accepting Pre-Orders For Its Liberty Vehicles
PAL-V, a well known Dutch company, is now accepting pre-orders for its flying car named as the Liberty vehicle. This air transport is called as “the first certified commercial flying car ever.” The new three-wheeled vehicle has a rectangular top-mounted rotor, to make it more like a motor trike with its unique gyrocopter skills compared to a car.
Liberty: PAL-V's First Commercial Flying Car
PAL-V is a Dutch vehicle manufacturer who created the Liberty Sport and Liberty Pioneer, vehicles that feature a pair of two-person three-wheelers capability of flying at speeds of up to 112mph. As reported by Belfast Telegraph, both Liberty vehicle is capable of moving at a top speed of 100mph and can go from 0-62mph in just nine seconds. While in the air, the vehicles can travel at 112mph and up to 4,000ft.
In addition, this flying car has a range of 817 miles and fuel efficiency of 31mpg. According to PAL-V, the Liberty vehicles take 10 minutes to switch from driving to flying mode and while in the air, you’ll get 310 miles from a full range of the tank. But take note that before a user can set PAL-V Liberty to flight mode, he/she will need to take an approximate of 40-hour exams and pass their flying exams.
Liberty Vehicles Are Now On Sale
The Liberty Sport is the cheaper between the two vehicles, with the base model starting at a price of $400,000. Meanwhile, the Liberty Pioneer comes in at $600,000. All the potential buyers of the Liberty vehicle but can’t afford to give that sort of money down up-front can alternatively drop a non-refundable deposit of just $25,000 for the Pioneer and $10,000 for the Sport.
After years of hard work, beating the technical and qualification challenges, our team succeeded in creating an innovative flying car that complies with existing safety standards determined by regulatory bodies around the world,” Robert Dingemanse, PAL-V’s CEO, said. According to Huffpost Tech, PAL-V won’t start shipping for a while yet, with first deliveries of the Liberty vehicles scheduled for the end of 2018.
