Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS) announced that it will exhibit its SureFly eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff & landing) octocopter on the main floor of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, aka the North American International Auto Show, January 14-17th. Workhorse's SureFly eVTOL personal air vehicle is a revolutionary design, resembling a large drone that carries humans or cargo.
SureFly is being developed for various markets/applications, including: first/emergency responders, urban air mobility/commuting, military, agriculture, cargo carrier, and more. SureFly has entered into the type certification process with the FAA.
The SureFly is a two-seat hybrid eVTOL multi-copter aircraft developed using Workhorses' hybrid technology. It is designed to carry up to 550 pounds of payload approximately 75 miles at a speed of about 70 miles per hour, day or night. It has been designed to create a new type of aircraft that is easy to operate, safe to fly and is moderately priced, relative to a conventional helicopter.
Steve Burns, Workhorse CEO, commented, "Given that many people think of eVTOLs as flying cars, we thought it would be a great opportunity to show off SureFly at NAIAS."
