The Dutch company, Electron Aviation, is making a bold promise that is set to disrupt the transportation industry as we know it. In the near future, the price of a train ticket could suffice for a seat in an electric air taxi. This means that instead of spending countless hours in trains traversing land, you could be whizzing through the air, saving valuable time while keeping an eye on your carbon footprint.
The company announced the creation of Supernal, a company that aims to develop electric flying vehicles for the future. Supernal will continue to develop a concept car, the S-A1, and plans to produce the first models as early as 2024, although they will have to pass certain tests and obtain certification from the authorities before they can be sold.
As large as an average car, the Urban eVTOL Leo can carry up to four people. It can take up to four passengers on board, travel 480 kilometres on a single charge and reach a top speed of 400 km/h.
