Three firms team up for hybrid electric plane take off

Airbus, Rolls-Royce and Siemens have teamed up to develop a hybrid electric aircraft for take-off in 2020. The E-Fan X hybrid-electric technology demonstrator aims to push and mature the technology, performance, safety and reliability, enabling quick progress on the hybrid electric technology. The programme also hopes to establish the requirements for future certification of electrically […]

Flying electric car takes off at Geneva Motor Show

A new electric flying car prototype could potentially end traffic jams once and for all. Designed by Italdesign and Airbus, the Pop.Up vehicle drives on roads like a normal car, until the modular propeller system is attached and the wheels are taken off – at this point it can take off vertically and fly through the […]

Siemens and Airbus to develop electric planes

European plane maker Airbus has joined forces with German technology firm Siemens to work on electric aircraft technology. They aim to demonstrate the technical feasibility of various hybrid and electric propulsion systems by the end of the decade, which are expected to significantly reduce fuel consumption and noise. The two companies plan to jointly develop […]
