The electric bus gets airborne

The electric bus gets airborne

Electric airbus is going to air at the end of this year

Siemens and Airbus have been working for two years on an electric bus that can fly autonomously and thus relieve the infrastructure of overcrowded cities. This autumn is the first test flight.

In 2050, 70 percent of the world's population lives in cities. One gets to deal with crowded streets, polluted air and an overloaded infrastructure. Siemens and Airbus want to remove part of that traffic with a flying electric bus, which can operate autonomously. This City Airbus can start and land vertically and transports a maximum of four people to their destination quickly, quietly, cheaply and, above all, sustainably.

The first flight of the City Airbus is scheduled for the end of 2018. The CityAirbus gets its energy from batteries and flies at a speed of up to 120 km / h. Typical destinations are airports, train stations or skyscraper roofs. The idea is to fly with a pilot on board in the first instance, but autonomous flying is also planned. In 2025, the first 'air buses' can be operational.
