An electric plane that gets you to places faster, at less cost and with fewer emissions

IMG_2410

A Boeing-backed  start-up is planning to put a hybrid-electric aircraft into commercial service within five years. Zunum Aero’s 12-seat plane will carry battery packs and a small fuel reserve for a back-up engine. They aim to get you to places faster, at less cost, with planes that are quieter and have far lower emissions, as well as connect thousands of communities that don’t currently have regular air service. Their first model will fly about 1130 kilometres, far enough to ferry travellers from Boston to Washington or Silicon Valley to Los Angeles.
