国庆刚刚收假 ，相信大家对前两天的大堵车仍旧心有余悸 。确实 ，7天长假堪比春节假期 ，车流人流也自然也不逊于春运 ，不少人都戏称其为“小春运” 。大概操作就是 ：前几天各大景区还堵得水泄不通 ，后几日北上广的归途又是一片哀鸣 。看着茫茫车海 ，只恨不能一跃而起 ，掠过一个个讨厌的红灯 ，一口气直达终点 。
正如科技创造出各类现代交通工具能帮我们缓解驿马之苦 ，用科技来解决堵车问题似乎也不是那么难 。这不 ，前不久网上便在疯传全球首款量产飞行汽车将在本月中旬开启预售的消息 ，推出飞行汽车的Terrafugia是一家来自的美国的初创公司 ，于去年年底被吉利全资收购 。要是再向前推进几十年 ，飞行汽车或许是件遥不可及的事儿 ，但放在现在 ，它的发展轨迹已经清晰可见 ，而随着科技的发展和技术逐渐成熟 ，它很有可能会彻底改变我们的出行方式 。
这个说法也并非空穴来风 。追根溯源 ，飞行汽车其实已经有上百年的历史了 。早在1917年 ，飞行汽车之父格·寇蒂斯就向人们展示了第一辆飞行汽车 ，当时不少人的飞行梦就已经被激起 ，尽管这辆车始终还是不能起到载人和飞行的作用 ，只能进行一些短距离的飞行式跳跃 ，但这个事件已经被铭刻在了飞行汽车发展史上 。二十来年后 ，汽车界的巨擘老亨利·福特也发出预言 ，“飞行汽车一定会来” 。
随后的50年代 ，终于有人将研究飞行汽车正式提上日程 ，吃螃蟹者是美国的莫尔·泰勒 ，通过不懈努力 ，他在1968年制造出真正能跑又能飞的飞行汽车 ，甚至还获得了当地政府签发的飞行许可证 ，受时代和交通的局限 ，这辆车最终只能在试验场发挥作用 。此后 ，工程师们又相继设计出“空中移动”及其升级版、可折叠飞行汽车等车型 。而现在 ，不少科技企业和车企都看瞄准了飞行汽车 ，不少关于飞行汽车的研发也正如火如荼地进行 。尽管飞行汽车目前还没进入我们的生活 ，但时不时传来一两个关于研发进展的消息 ，却在提醒着世人 ，它其实已经离我们不远 。吉利收购Terrafugia ，首款飞行汽车推出在企业布局上 ，李书福一向都喜欢“用钱办事” ，不仅收购跑车品牌路特斯、拿下戴姆勒9.69%的股份、拯救濒临垂危的沃尔沃品牌 ，它还收购了一家飞行汽车公司 ，收购当时就有不少网友在戏谑 ，吉利是不是想上天了 。
吉利收购的Terrafugia ，是一家初创飞行汽车企业 ，虽然是创业公司 ，但是飞行汽车领域老司机 。它的首款车Transition（也就是当前发起预售的飞行汽车）早在2009年3月就已经试飞成功 ，之后该车亦是经过了近十年的优化和改进 ，渐趋成熟 。这是世界首款实现量产的飞行汽车 ，据介绍 ，这款汽车可以乘坐两个人 ，采用的是油电混合动力 ，飞行高度可以达到3,048m ，其空中续航里程为640km ，最高时速161km 。不少媒体推测 ，它的预售价格会在200万元左右 。
不仅仅是吉利 ，像奥迪、戴姆勒、阿斯顿·马丁等不少豪车企业都曾对飞行汽车表示过兴趣 ，谷歌、波音、巴航工业这些科技和航空领域的企业也想来分一杯羹 。虎狼在后 ，吉利是首推飞行汽车的吃螃蟹者 ，但想要守住江山 ，保持口碑销量第一的地位 ，仍旧需要更多大手笔投入 ，只有打造出质量更硬、可靠性更高的产品才能立于市场不败之地 。至于市场份额 ，有了前者的奠基 ，未来自然也能够水到渠成 。
The flying car opens the pre-sale, and tyrants can drive directly to the sky.
The National Day has just been taken off, I believe you still have a lingering fear of the heavy traffic jam of the first two days. Indeed, the seven-day long vacation is comparable to the Spring Festival holiday, and the traffic flow is naturally not inferior to the Spring Festival. Many people jokingly call it the "Spring Festival". Probably the operation is: a few days ago the major scenic areas are still blocked, a few days later the return of the north to Guangzhou is a plaintive. Looking at the vast sea of cars, I just wish I could not jump up and skim through the annoying red lights, and go straight to the end point in one breath.
Just as technology has created all kinds of modern means of transportation that can help us ease the plight of posthorses, it does not seem so difficult to solve traffic jams with technology. Not long ago, there was a wild rumor on the Internet that the world's first mass-produced flying car would be on sale in the middle of this month. Terrafugia, an American startup, was bought wholly by Geely at the end of last year. Flying cars may be a distant thing to do if we move forward for decades, but now the trajectory is clearly visible, and with the development of technology and technology maturing, it is likely to completely change the way we travel.
A century old flying car
This is not groundless. Tracing to the source, flying cars actually have a history of over 100 years. As early as 1917, the father of flying cars, Ge Curtis, showed people the first flying car. Many people's dream of flying was already aroused. Although the car still can not carry people and fly, can only do some short-distance flying jumps, but this event has been engraved in the flight. In the history of automobile development. Twenty years later, Henry Ford, the automotive giant, predicted that "flying cars will come".
Then, in the 1950s, someone put the study of flying cars on the agenda. The crab eater was Moore Taylor of the United States. Through unremitting efforts, he built a flying car that could really run and fly in 1968. He even obtained a flying license issued by the local government, which was limited by the times and traffic. It can only play a role in the proving ground. Since then, engineers have devised the "Air Moving" and its upgrades, foldable flying cars and other models. Now, many technology companies and automobile companies are aiming at flying cars, a lot of research and development on flying cars are also in full swing. Although the flying car has not yet entered our lives, but from time to time came one or two news about the progress of research and development, but remind the world that it is not far from us. Geely's acquisition of Terrafugia, the first flying car launched in the corporate layout, Li Shufu has always liked to "do things with money," not only acquiring sports car brand Lutes, Daimler's 9.69% stake, rescue the endangered Volvo brand, it also bought a flying car company, the purchase of many netizens at that time in Jest, Geely, do you want to go to heaven?
Geely's acquisition of Terrafugia, a start-up flying car company, is a startup but a veteran driver in the field of flying cars. Its first model, Transition, which is currently on sale as a pre-sale flying car, was successfully tested in March 2009, and has since matured after nearly a decade of optimization and improvement. This is the world's first mass-produced flying car, according to the introduction, this car can ride two people, using a hybrid fuel-electric power, flying altitude can reach 3,048m, its air range is 640km, the highest speed of 161km per hour. Many media speculated that its pre-sale price would be around 2 million yuan.
Not just Geely, luxury car companies like Audi, Daimler and Aston Martin have expressed interest in flying cars, and companies like Google, Boeing and Air Pakistan want a share in the technology and aviation industries. After Tiger Wolf, Geely is the first to push flying cars crab eater, but to maintain the reputation of the first place in sales, still need more investment, only to create a harder, more reliable products in order to remain invincible in the market. As for the market share, with the foundation of the former, the future will naturally come true.
