India is expected to get its first flying car PAL-V in 2021. The car has already been launched in some of the international markets. The production model was first publicly shown at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland in 2018. With a target to commence production at its manufacturing plant in Gujarat by 2021, PAL-V will be available in two variants namely Liberty Sport and Liberty Pioneer edition.

It will require both a driver’s license and an autogiro pilot’s license for operating it.
For road usage, PAL-V Liberty offers a top speed of 160 kmph and 0-100 kmph acceleration of less than 9 seconds. In order to run the vehicle on the road, the propeller and rotor need to be stopped. This diverts the power to the wheels which allow it to operate as a three-wheeled car. After this, it needs a straight road of about 330 m to take-off.
