Alef sees over 440 orders for its flying car in Q4
Alef Aeronautics amassed over 440 pre-orders for it Model A flying car in Q4 last year.
Upon delivery, those orders represent over $132m of revenue for the start-up, said the firm. A part of the order is made up by a large Hong Kong-based aviation technology company.
Jim Dukhovny, Alef’s CEO, said: “Alef is aiming to deliver the first real flying car in history, and to receive so many early pre-orders is incredible validation of the market potential we’re looking to satisfy. Further, we’re extremely pleased to see orders from both individual and corporate consumers in such a short space of time after our unveiling. This is a great investment in the key sustainable transportation on the ground and in the air.”
Unveiled in California back in October 2022, Alef plans for the Model A to be the first flying car in commercial production with both street driving and vertical take-off capabilities. It is designed to fit within existing urban infrastructure for driving and parking.
