BRITISH automotive distributor, Pentagon Motor Group, has begun to design a sales scheme for a flying car that is predicted to be more expensive than the price of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale.
The Pentagon Motor Group estimates that the flying car will probably retail for US$686,455, more than the US$625,000 2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale. The price becomes expensive because flying cars have several components that are not yet available in the market, such as wings, small jet engines and special fuel tanks. Users also need to spend more money for ownership of flying licenses and standard parking lots.
The Pentagon Motor Group’s head of marketing, Shakeel Hussian, said the cost of owning a flying car was still unrealistic for most people. But gradually the price will go down if people’s interest is getting higher.
“Costs will decrease over time, following a similar trajectory to EVs. The cost of the first electric cars is high but slowly becoming affordable and widely available,” he said.
Pentagon Motor Group sells several flying cars, including AeroMobil, PAL-V, Aska, Moller Skycar 400, Terrafugia, and SkyDrive. [antaranew/photo special]
