Electric flying as the future of private mobility
Founding Year: 2015
Lilium is designing the world’s fastest and highest-range electric aircraft that is commercially available.
The two-seated light aircraft consumes half the energy of today’s most efficient electric cars and is so quiet that it can’t be heard flying in 1 km altitude. It is propelled by electric impeller engines and features an extensive safety concept comprising a 3-fold redundant fly-by-wire control system, 12 redundant batteries and engines as well as a parachute rescue system for the whole aircraft.
