Alauda Aeronautics, the world’s first electric flying racing car factory
The flying car is slowly but surely becoming a reality with Alauda Aeronautics all set to establish the world’s first electric flying racing car factory in Adelaide. Vehicles produced there will compete in the company’s upcoming Airspeeder racing series. The facility is intended to potentially be located in the Australian Space Park. The South Australian government has announced a $20 million (AUS) contribution to the Australian Space Park.
Alauda was founded in 2016 by entrepreneur Matt Pearson. He started the company with a vision to accelerate the development of the eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) industry, which is expected to be worth $1.5 trillion by 2040. Alauda quickly went from concept to prototype to by full-scale functional development vehicles. . The company is now entering full production ahead of the first races in 2022. For this, their Alauda technical leadership team comes from Ferrari, McLaren, Jaguar Land Rover, Rolls-Royce, Boeing and Airbus. Fleet Space Technologies, also co-founded by Matt Pearson, will establish its manufacturing and R&D center.
In the United States, advanced passenger-focused air mobility facilities have already been established. It is the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the world’s first electric flying racing car factory.
“As we approach our first Grand Prix races of electric flying cars, we are proud to establish the world’s first facility specifically designed for the production of these pioneering racing vehicles. South Australia is rapidly becoming a global center of excellence in the development of advanced space and aerospace technologies. Placement in this facility will create world-class collaboration opportunities with companies at the forefront of their respective fields. This, in turn, will rapidly accelerate a mobility revolution and put Adelaide on the map as a world-class center of innovation.
