The Terrafugia TF-X is being developed by Terrafugia in Woburn, MA. The TF-X utilizes folding wings that allow for landing in compact areas, and two propellers for propulsion. The TF-X is the next model in the line that is anchored by the Transition.
Stage of Development
Range: 500 miles (800 km)
Cruise Speed: 200 mph (320 km/h)
Engine Fuel: Unleaded automotive gasoline
Electric Motor Pods: 1 MW of power
Dimensions: The TF-X™ will fit in a single car garage or standard parking space.
Takeoff and Landing: The TF-X™ will be able to take off and land vertically from a level clearing of at least 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter.
Certification: Flying the TF-X™ will require substantially less training time than a traditional pilot’s license or sport pilot certificate. Driving the TF-X™ will require a standard US driver’s license.
Pricing: The price will be consistent with high-end luxury cars. More specific pricing information will become available as we progress in the development of the TF-X™ program.
Our Take on the TF-X
The Terrafugia TF-X aims to replace the Terrafugia Transition as the premier flying car in the Terrafugia product line. Terrafugia is in the unique position of being able to apply the lessons learned from their Transition vehicle directly to design and production of the TF-X. Additionally, the company is concurrently developing the modular TF-2 system to aid in transportation of commercial freight payloads, or even persons. Stay tuned on Transition developments as an indicator of future success for Terrafugia.
