It has been too long since we watched George Jetson get robbed by his wife in his flying car, and we’ve been on the edge of our seats waiting for the day we could get in our own anti-gravity pod and take off anywhere. While reliable interplanetary travel is still a few decades off, several companies have been working towards flying cars to get us from point A to point B here on Earth. We kept a few close contenders off our list since they don’t quite fit the mold of “flying car,” which should be both road and air safe.
The AeroMobil promises to be one of the first hybrid car-plane on the market. With its wings tucked along the roofline, the AeroMobil 4.0 can switch between a hybrid driven road mode, or fly to its destination as a small sport aircraft powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine that churns out 300 bhp. With an airborne range of a little over 450 miles, the AeroMobil should get you anywhere you need to go. The newest version of the AeroMobile promises to be a fully electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) vehicle, designed for navigating urban environments.
