Five seats equipped with 36 electric motors with operation as the reactor has a range of 300 km with a maximum speed of 300 mph.
This model is part of a long list of eVTOL vehicles (vertical takeoff and descent) that have the ability to take off and land vertically. A taxi for Lilium underwent a first inspection in early May, the company said, and promised a 2025 "four times faster" service.
