This new top of the range car doubles off as a jumper plane. The T-FX is a hybrid between a car and a jumper plane with wings that fold out of its sides. Volvos parent company Geely claim that this new concept car will have a range of 400 miles, under a single charge, cruising at a top speed of 200 miles per hour.
The car simply transfers into a jumper plane by its wings unfolding out of its sides in a matter of seconds. This is followed by its dual electric motors turning vertically upwards and lifting the car in the air. Once its airborne the Dual wing engines go to a resting horizontal position and turn off whist the car gets powered by its rear engine.
The T-FX is being helped with the world renowned space federal agency, NASA. They claim their aim is to cut commute times by more than half. The issue we at Brotato Official ask, what licensing will you need to fly such a vehicle? Would it require a pilots license for a plane, helicopter or if it became self flying would you need nothing more than a driving licence. The predicted price for the T-FX is estimated at ￡180’000, which is approximately six times more than the average Volvo car.
