News agency PTI reported that an MoU between PAL-V and the state government was recently signed. PAL-V Vice President Carlo Maasbommel said his company chose Gujarat for its "world class infrastructure, ease of doing business and better port and logistic facilities". It is also reported that the state government will help PAL-V get all necessary approvals from the central government for the plant in Gujarat.

The plant in Gujarat, it is reported, will help PAL-V export its products to several European countries and that orders for 110 flying cars have already been received.

PAL-V claims it has the world's first flying car production model called Liberty. "Inspired by nature, engineered by men and evolved over time, the PAL-V Liberty is a groundbreaking product that inaugurates the age of the flying car," the company states. "The PAL-V Liberty is a marriage between safety and fun, designed to satisfy the most demanding customers."
