eVTOL alef ‘model A’ combines a flying and driving car in one electric vehicle

eVTOL alef ‘model A’ soon to fly high

Alef Aeronautica offers its own eVTOL through Alef Flying car, a prototype flying car that would have a driving range of 200 miles and a flight range of 110 miles. As the team believes, the concept car it would be the only drivable flying car with eVTOL capabilities that could fit within existing urban infrastructure for driving and parking. the car design appears to give drivers a stable ride with its car-like exterior, a potential competitor to those who envision their eVTOL as open or more helicopter look. The company shares in its statement that the electric The Alef flying car would not have exposed propellers for safety and to drown out loud hums and also to save space. To be fair, it doesn’t look bulky at first glance, so the team might just make the right move.

Alef flying car could avoid and detect obstacles

Up to this point, Aeronautics Alef could reveal that the Alef flying car would be fully electric, anchoring key components such as Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP), which helps airflow to be evenly distributed, triple to eightfold redundancy of all key components, real-time diagnostics and pre-flight parachutes to always keep drivers informed of your driving or flying, gliding, and even a full vehicle parachute in case of emergencies.

An element of theft could come through the obstacle detection and avoidance feature the team plans to install, helping drivers navigate through potential air and ground cruises. With the two-in-one system that Alef ‘Model A’ seeks, drivers can simply fly and slide on the ground whenever they want, but potential traffic controls may be put in place to ensure that everyone on the ground and in the air at this point, would have a safe trip.

After the flying car, there would be a soaring sedan.

Alef Aeronautics shares in the release that the $300,000 Alef flying car would be developed using the latest hardware and software technology and would end up being lightweight packages with durable components, software simulators and analysis, and rigorous flight testing. The team plans to start production and deliver the first batch in 2025 and is already gearing up to build a four-person sedan, called the Alef Model Z, that would be capable of flying 200 miles with a range of 400 miles. For this goal, the team is considering introducing the sedan in 2035.
