The Tata-Dodge Matador is the first successful commercial vehicle that utilise A-Grav lift & propulsion. Although not the first A-Grav powered vehicle it is the first to achieve proven commercial success mostly in its intended usage as an Air-Taxi.
The bulky generators are positioned at the four corners of the aircar powered by a small fusion reactor in the rear of the vehicle, taking up the majority of the internal space but leaving enough seating for a driver and four passengers, three on the rear bench-seat.
The high-tech requirement and maintenance had originally put off many investors but Tata-Dodge persevered with subsidising Taxi-Companies over a period of 5 years, proving during that time, that maintenance costs were exceptionally low and that “fuel” economy was beyond any other similar-use vehicle.
Whilst notoriously slow to accelerate its ability to “fly” over any road obstacles and, indeed, to go entirely off-road, has proven to be immensely popular with passengers who invariably discovered that going “as the crow flies” meant much shorter travel times than much faster land-cars that were restricted to prepared roadways.
Initially utilised as VIP Taxi’s the Matador has started to percolate downwards into regular Taxi usage and is becoming a fixture on many planetary systems across the Technosphere with even a few (illegally acquired) vehicles turning up on Earth.
An open-top version of the Matador is planned for release in the near future.
