The Futuristic $98K Jetson One Sold Out for 2023 and Nearly All of 2024

Jetson One continues to be the world leader in electric personal jets. Although this year didn't bring spectacular milestones in terms of development or production, the Swedish-designed eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) is still insanely popular, and we can see why. Jetson One was specifically designed for private use and doesn't require a pilot license.

The air mobility company's 2023 production is entirely sold out. Precisely 200 units will be going to eager customers all over the world. A quick look at the order book will reveal that most of them are, however, in the US. Americans were willing to pay an $8,000 deposit for this $98,000 personal jet that is delivered to their doors and that needs to be assembled.

This increase in US orders might have something to do with the fact that Jetson One moved its headquarters to Palo Alto, California, after originally being founded in Poland and then relocating to Sweden. Last summer, one of the company's co-founders, Tomasz Patan, flew his own futuristic creation from his home to work, completing what he claimed was the first eVTOL commute in the world.

The pioneering flight, part of which we got to watch on the company's social media platforms, cut the usual time it would take to cover that route by a whopping 88%. It was one more reason for people to dream about owning their private single-seat, zero-emission aircraft.

Despite the intimidating costs, nearly all the delivery slots for next year were also filled. Only three are left, probably not for long. This is a continuation of the company's incredible success right from the start. In the first month of 2022, Jetson had already sold out all the units for that year, reaching more than 3,000 purchase requests since October 2021.

Although technically not a flying car (it doesn't combine flying capabilities with riding on roads), the Jetson One is pretty close to a winged alternative to personal vehicles. It's small and lightweight and fitted with eight motors that can propel it at 63 mph (102 kph).

At the same time, it claims to offer exceptional safety, starting with the race car-inspired frame, down to state-of-the-art safety systems, including a triple-redundant flight computer, terrain tracking, and obstacle avoidance.

This unusual personal aircraft comes pre-assembled and can be flown by almost anybody after basic training - no pilot license required. Compared to other eVTOLs on the market, the Jetson One is literally in a league of its own. The specifics of its structure and purpose place it in a separate category in terms of regulations, which drastically simplifies the road to certification.

Despite Jetson One's crazy success, the Swedish company has a much bigger vision for the future. It envisions an aircraft version that can include passengers, culminating with a four-seat flying car by the end of this decade.
