Continuing in its steps toward the future, Moller International recently unveiled two more concept Skycar designs: the Skycar 200 LS and the Skycar 100 LS. With road congestion reaching an all-time high, Moller International has been looking to the skies to solve this intense traffic problem. Both of these astounding cars were built for urban flying.

Outfitted with 170 HP, these Skycars are capable of reaching a parachute safe height in 10 seconds with a maximum rate of climb at 1,806 feet per minute. What is unexpected about these sleek fire engine red models is their outstanding fuel economy. Capable of doing 42 miles to the gallon, the Skycar 200 LS and the Skycar 100 LS can reach a distance of 434 miles on one tank of fuel. Another remarkable feature is the Skycar's vertical takeoff and landing mechanism. Since these Skycars are destined for cities, this innovative technology does not require nearly the amount of space that commercial aircrafts need to take off and land.
