Muscat: A flying car has been rolled out by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (Geely Holding) after the company signed an agreement with US-based Terrafugia Inc..

A prototype of a two-person aerial vehicle, The Transition, was released by Terrafugia in 2013. The Transition is designed to fly like a typical light sport aircraft and also work like a car on the ground. The limited series flying car will be commercially available in 2019. It is a folding-wing, two-seat aircraft, which alters between flight and drive modes in seconds.

TF-X, the world’s first vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) four-seat flying car is an all-electric vehicle with a computer-controlled flight and will be made available by 2023.

In Oman, Geely Holding Group is represented by Towell Auto Centre (TAC).

A spokesperson of Towell Auto Centre (TAC) said, “Geely Holding Group believes in continuous innovation and Geely customers here in Oman stand to gain. Earlier customers benefitted from the modern aerodynamic styling and safety through the acquisition of Volvo cars and its design chief, Peter Horbury, joining Geely. As the owner of The London Taxi Company, Geely brings the technology of the iconic black cab to the table. Then in late 2017, Geely acquired the Lotus and Proton brands. Now customers will continue to benefit from the pioneering new technology of Terrafugia which has been taken over by Geely.”
