Flying cars are finally here: See how much they cost

If you live in Lagos, it is very likely that you’ve found yourself in heavy traffic. The kind that leave you frustrated for hours on end – you see yourself wishing for a flying car. I happily announce to you that flying cars are finally here. PALC Liberty Flying Car is the first commercially available flying car, and it goes for a whooping $400,000.

The first 90 units will be tagged as Pioneer Editions. They will have special exterior and interior details, plus features such as power heating. This first set will cost $599,000. After this, the standard model will be rolled out.  In a press release, Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V said the following:

“PAL-V deliberately chose to engineer, design and build a flying car with proven technologies and fully compliant with existing regulations,” the company said in a press release today. “This leads to a first product delivery date that is realistic and imminent.”

“After years of hard work, beating the technical and qualification challenges, our team succeeded in creating an innovative flying car that complieswith existing safety standards determined by regulatory bodies around the world,”

  1. In my own opinion, Terrafugia is better. It needs no runway at all. It can take off from you parking lot. However, they’re apparently no date in sight yet for commercial availability..

    If you think flying cars would ameliorate the traffic mayhem situation in a place like Lagos, think again.

    Perhaps because of the “steep” price (affordability), you may think there won’t be congestion in the skies.

    But remember there was a time there were so many private_jets owned by Nigerians that parking them in the airports was a problem!

    Mark my words.. Every high-octane business people, senator and other government functionaries would soon start purchasing this like pure water.

    Recession? That’s just a word!
