Alef: Developing The World’s First Real Flying Car

A Special New Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show Attraction

Alef is a California-based sustainable electric transportation company developing the world’s first real flying car, a road-legal passenger car capable of achieving vertical takeoff and forward flight.

Their genius team will be showcasing their full scale prototype as the inaugural exhibitor in a special “Machines of Tomorrow” display at the year's Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, Sunday, April 28 at Half Moon Bay Airport.

Alef’s goal is to enable faster, easier, environment-friendly commutes and alleviate the burden of urban congestion thanks to proprietary technology that elevates the vehicle safely, quietly, and environment-friendly above everyday traffic.

In 2022, Alef revealed their full scale flying prototypes and production mock-up for a new class of flying vehicle they aim to make the first true flying car.

The vehicle consists of a passenger compartment inside a box-wing biplane frame. There is no bottom, other than structural elements, and the top is a mesh to protect people from the blades of the 8 rotors which are inside the box. Also at the center of the box is a 2-seat passenger compartment, which is articulated so it can rotate with 2 degrees of freedom.

The vehicle also features 4 wheels with hub motors (the mock-up has standard car wheels but the eventual vehicle will probably have smaller and lighter wheels.) The initial vehicle will be expensive at $300,000 and be battery-electric with a flying range of around 110 miles. Alef plans to ship that vehicle in 2025, but in the 2030s they plan to make a $35,000 vehicle once they go to scale.
