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.
