The World's First Electric Flying Taxi (Video)

The Munich based  Startup company Lilium has designed the first all electric jet plane capable of maneuvering metropolitan cities.

The two-seater jet plane has a top speed of 300 km/h; Lilium has completed test flights in Germany.

What makes this aircraft  truly spectacular is its ability to take of vertically, much like a helicopter, before it takes off horizontally towards it’s destination.

Lilium has plans for building versions of the aircraft that can carry five passengers, and be controlled by a pilot rather than remotely. For now, the plane is limited to two passengers.

According to Lilium, this is the only all electric aircraft capable of taking off vertically.

The plane has engines mounted on both the front and rear wings, with a total of 36 engines equipped.
