Terrafugia TF-X: New dream of the flying car

Terrafugia TF-X
Subscriptions & booklets

A Except for a few computer drawings and an animated video there are of the new one Model not yet available. A four-seater model with foldable wings and swiveling rotors on the wing tips and a propeller on the stern is planned. This should allow the TF-X to take off and land vertically. The TF-X has a parachute system on board for emergencies.

Terrafugia TF-X will fly in 8 years at the earliest

The Terrafugia TF-X is powered by a hybrid drive. In the take-off and landing phase, electric motors are supposed to drive the rotors. In flight operations, a combustion engine takes over the drive of the tail propeller. The batteries can be charged at the socket or during flight operations using the combustion engine. The wings attached to the roof can be folded down, whereby the rotors then disappear into the vehicle flanks. The cruising speed in the air should be around 320 km /h, the range around 800 kilometers.

So far, the Terrafugia TF-X is only available as a 1:10 model for testing in the wind tunnel. According to the company, it can take a good eight to 12 years until it is ready for series production.
