Meet the flying car that’s set to go on sale next year

A flying car claiming to be the world’s first production model of its kind has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Pal-V Liberty has been in development for more than ten years and is designed to be able to switch between being a road-going car and a stable aircraft.

Though it starts out as a car, flying the Pal-V does require a pilot’s licence, and a small airstrip is also needed for take-off and landing.

The flying car is also something of a limited edition piece, with fewer than 100 versions of the pioneer edition of the vehicle on offer – though a sport version is also going on sale.

The company says it hopes to ship the first cars in 2019.
