Primeiro táxi aéreo totalmente elétrico

Graphic News

May 16, 2019 -- A startup alemã Lilium revelou o que diz ser o primeiro “táxi aéreo”
totalmente elétrico. Acrescenta que a nave isenta de emissões pode
estar a prestar serviço em 2025, revolucionando o transporte urbano.

The jet, powered by 36 all-electric engines, will be capable of travelling up to 300km in just 60 minutes — cutting down on travelling times across congested cities or regions.

With five seats, including the pilot, it will be able to offer a taxi service for groups or small families, offering a serious alternative to road travel.

The jet, which takes off and lands vertically but then moves into horizontal flight, completed its maiden flight over Germany this month.

Lilium is not alone in developing urban air mobility vehicles. Uber and Kitty Hawk are also looking at launching an electric-powered flying taxi service, while aircraft manufacturers, including Boeing and Airbus, are investing in hybrid-electric propulsion systems.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
