From Manhattan to JFK Airport in 15 Minutes
Lilium is an electric vertical take-off and landing jet. The vehicle is said to be 5 times faster than a car while being 100% emission-free. By the simple press of a button, the jet will pick up up to 5 passengers from a landing pad and take them to their desired location.
The CEO and co-founder of Lilium, Daniel Wiegand, and his team turned their very first idea in 2013 into the first full-scale prototype in 2017. The air taxi will take 5 passengers to their desired destination with maximum speed of 300 km/h and flying range up to 300 km.
Surging home prices and constant traffic jams won’t be an issue anymore. Lilium’s vision is to make commuting affordable and less time-consuming. Their aims is to allow people to live in the countryside while working in the city.
Affordable, Cleaner and Faster
Lilium has it all. The jet uses high-performance electric motor that produces zero emissions, while maintaining low noise levels. Lilium takes-off and lands vertically like a helicopter. However, once in the air, it accelerates into forward flight, achieving much higher speeds. The initial fees for rides are comparable with those charged by taxis, but the company’s long-term mission is to reduce costs even further.
