The vehicle has a flight range of around 700km and can travel at speeds of up to 160km/h on the ground and 259km/h in the air.

"AeroMobil cuts travel times compared to traditional airline alternatives, while its powerful engine provides greater range and a more efficient use of energy than most civil helicopters and personal drones," Aeromobil claims on their website.

The Aeromobil is powered by an internal combustion boxer engine with a full authority digital engine (or electronics) control (FADEC) unit.

"Additional power and altitude capability have been delivered using the very latest turbocharging techniques and systems," Aeromobil says.

"During flight mode operation, AeroMobil has an available power of 224 kW (300 hp), delivered to the propeller through bespoke transmission.

"On the road, AeroMobil is powered by a hybrid electric system. The generator is the same engine that powers the vehicle in the air; this in turn powers a pair of electric motors located in the front axle."

Aeromobil will produce 500 of the vehicles, which will be sold at at a price between $1.3 and $1.6 million.
