Last year we talked a little about the proposal to eVTOL from the swedish company Jetson, The ‘Jetson ONE‘ it is a one-person manned vehicle and is able to achieve a maximum speed of 102 km/h. The aircraft sold almost all models that were made available for purchase by the manufacturer and must start being delivered to your buyers in 2022.

Initially the company had offered a small number of units for sale, but now it has expanded to a total of almost 100 models can be purchased, with a delivery queue that runs until 2023. Currently, almost all aircraft have been purchased, with only three chassis available to be purchased on the manufacturer’s official website.

The price to buy one Jetson ONE is a little expensive, with the interested party having to pay $22,000 to place the order of purchase and then needing pay another $70,000 to buy the unit after it leaves the factory. Even with this high price, the company had a high demand from interested parties, with the Jetson claiming to have received over 3,000 pre-orders when it made next year’s chassis available for sale.
