飞行汽车作为未来可能流行的出行方式之一 ，各巨头均已洞见其市场前景 ，纷纷布局 ，吸引了大量资金进入 ，对飞行汽车的创新发展起到了重要的支撑作用 。据不完全统计 ，2017年全球有20多个团队正在进行飞行汽车的研发 ，主要参与者大概分为四类 ：飞行器制造公司、汽车公司、互联网公司和初创公司 。
比如 ，阿斯顿马丁已展示Volante Vision概念飞行汽车 ，Uber联手巴西航空公司欲建飞行的士网络 ，保时捷、英国发动机制造商罗尔斯·罗伊斯公司也都表达了加入飞行汽车开发的意愿 。
然而 ，大多企业的飞行汽车还只停留于概念产品阶段 。
吉利控股集团早已前瞻布局 ，于去年11月收购全球首家飞行汽车公司——美国Terrafugia太力飞行汽车公司（以下简称“太力”） 。本次收购既源于吉利控股对未来出行方式的预判 ，也是吉利控股向创新型科技公司转型的重要布局之一 。
太力总部位于美国马萨诸塞州 ，由五位麻省理工学院（MIT）的优秀毕业生于2006年创办 。作为全球最早研发出飞行汽车的公司 ，太力积累了丰富的经验 ，在未来创新技术、工程与生产领域具有前沿优势 。
收购完成后 ，吉利控股凭借完善的全球研发生产体系 ，为太力注入持续科技创新的能力 。在吉利的全球协同效应下 ，太力飞行汽车实现研发加速与量产 。瑞典的吉利中欧汽车技术中心（CEVT）和太力美国研发总部一起承担研发 ，路特斯的轻量化技术和空气动力学的设计经验也提供了支持 ，中国的制造基地则完成生产与组装 。此后 ，第一代太力飞行汽车的研发速度快速提升 。
The world's first mass production vehicle
As one of the most popular travel modes in the future, the giants have already seen their market prospects and layout one after another, attracting a large number of funds to enter, which has played an important role in supporting the innovation and development of flying vehicles. According to incomplete statistics, in 2017, more than 20 teams around the world are conducting research and development of flying vehicles, the main participants are roughly divided into four categories: aircraft manufacturers, automotive companies, Internet companies and start-ups.
Aston Martin, for example, has demonstrated the Volante Vision concept of flying cars, Uber has teamed up with Brazilian Airlines to build a network of flying taxis, and Porsche and British engine maker Rawls Royce have also expressed their willingness to join the development of flying cars.
However, most of the enterprises' flying cars only stay in the concept product stage.
Geely Holdings has long been a forward-looking group, in November last year to buy the world's first flying car company, Terrafugia, the U.S. Taili Flight Automobile Company (hereinafter referred to as "Taili"). The acquisition is not only due to Geely Holdings'prediction of future travel patterns, but also an important layout for Geely Holdings to transform into an innovative technology company.
Taili, based in Massachusetts, was founded in 2006 by five outstanding MIT graduates. As the world's earliest company to develop flying cars, Taili has accumulated rich experience in the future of innovative technology, engineering and production areas with cutting-edge advantages.
After the acquisition, Geely Holdings, with a sound global R&D production system, injected Taili with the ability to sustain technological innovation. Under the global synergy of Geely, we have speeded up R & D and mass production. The Geely Central European Automotive Technology Center (CEVT) in Sweden and Taili's U.S. R&D headquarters jointly undertake R&D. Lutes'lightweight technology and aerodynamic design experience also provide support, while China's manufacturing base completes production and assembly. Since then, the development speed of the first generation of Tai Li flying vehicle has been improved rapidly.
