Tech firm Alef Aeronautics last year designed an unbelievable flying car that can drive on roads and take off to avoid traffic jams.

The £270,000 wonder vehicle has been dubbed Model A and is the “world’s first”.

They say it could one day travel along futuristic sky highways, while also using existing ground infrastructure.

The California-based company are set to begin delivering Model As at the end of 2025.

Alef’s CEO, Jim Dukhovny said he has now received 2,850 pre-orders for the car.

Customers can access pre-orders for the Model A online and secure the car with just a £100 deposit.

Alef’s CEO, Jim Dukhovny, told CNBC: “As of today we have a little bit more than 2,850 preorders with deposits down, which makes it the bestselling aircraft in history, more than Boeing, Airbus, Joby Aviation and most of the eVTOLs [electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles] combined.”

The company has apparently been testing a full-sized prototype since 2019.

They say the car has an electric propulsion system with no exposed propellers and comprehensive flight stabilisation and safety systems.

The founding team of Constantine Kisly, Pavel Markin, Oleg Petrov and Jim Dukhovny have over 70 years of experience in engineering and technology development and have been working on the flying car since 2015.

Major investors include Tim Draper, best known as one of the first investors in Tesla, and Bugatti designer Hirash Razaghi.

Model A pre-sale begins on 19 October, with £135 regular queue or £1,345 priority queue deposit.

The team are also working on a Model Z which will reportedly be a four-person sedan version.

It is set to be introduced in 2035 and priced at £31,000.

The Model Z will have a flying range of over 300 miles and a 200 mile driving range, say Alef.
