Every structural component of the 4-seat GT4 is constructed from carbon fibe composite. Volta Voltare, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, USA, says this makes the aircraft stable and agile, but also able to withstand tremendous loads, corrosion, weather and UV exposure over many years of service life.

10 Volta Volaré GT4 aircraft remain available for purchase in 2012, and only 36 are scheduled for production in 2013.

Volta Volare claims its EViation Drive System is the world's first hybrid-electric drive system in the field of aviation.

The launch price is US$495,000.
