AeroMobil's flying car gets a hybrid version: Of course this year’s Frankfurt motor show has seen a various numbers of automobiles, which differ by colors, shape and their features. But even in place with hundreds of cars, there was one which you couldn’t skip, because it’s much more different. This hybrid deploys a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is used to drive an electric front wheel drive system that uses two electric motors and an electric differential for a total 110 horsepower ... which also has a wingspan of 8,800 mm.
While the AeroMobil from the Bratislava-based company of the same name is a car that goes from 0 62 miles per hour in what the company says is in 10 seconds and a top speed of 100 mph, it is also a two-passenger aircraft with a maximum cruising range of some 466 miles. When the vehicle is being used as an aircraft rather than a motor vehicle, the turbocharged engine provides approximately 300 horsepower to the rear-mounted, direct-drive, variable pitch propeller.
