The TF-X™ is the practical realization of the dream of countless visions of the future; it is designed to be the flying car for all of us.
In order to achieve this long-sought-after vision, Terrafugia will focus the TF-X™ program with clear goals that enhance the safety, simplicity, and convenience of personal transportation. We believe these goals are achievable today.
TF-XTM Quick Facts
Timeline: The TF-X™ is still in the early stages of development, with a production date estimated at 8-12 years in the future.
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.
Range: the TF-X™ will have a range of 500 miles with cruise speeds up to 200mph.
Learning how to safely operate the TF-X™ will take substantially less time than would be required for a traditional aircraft.
The TF-X™ will give the operator significant freedom in flight – controlled in a manner similar to steering a car.
The TF-X™ will be able to fly in either “manual” or “automatic” modes between approved landing zones or airports.
The TF-X™ will carry four people in car-like comfort.
The TF-X™ will have a non-stop flight range of at least 500 miles.
The TF-X™ will fit into a standard construction single car garage.
The TF-X™ will be able to take off vertically from a level clearing of at least 100ft in diameter.
The TF-X™ will be able to drive on roads and highways – providing true door-to-door convenience and an automotive level of weather insensitivity.
In order to facilitate the achievement of this new dimension of personal freedom, the TF-X™ will be priced as low as possible while still allowing Terrafugia to grow to support our customers.
The final pricing will not be set until we are much closer to delivery.
The biggest price driver is the cost of production.
It is likely that TF-X™ will be more expensive than a “normal car” due to the higher costs of the necessary light-weight materials, but with investment in automotive scale production, early studies indicate that it is possible that the final price point could be on-par with high-end luxury cars of today.
As demand increases, new materials and manufacturing processes will surely be developed and the price may come down further in the distant future.
Development of the TF-X™ is expected to last 8-12 years. If you wish to be one of the first to own a TF-X™ vehicle, consider reserving a Transition® today. The Transition® will be delivered long before the TF-X™ is ready, and as loyal Terrafugia customers, Transition® buyers will be given the option to purchase TF-X™ vehicles before the rest of the public. The knowledge and experience you gain as a Transition® owner will help prepare you for the TF-X™, and your feedback on our first product will help us craft the second.
Become a part of the Terrafugia transportation revolution today!
