The eVTOL market is growing rapidly. Electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles, or eVTOLs, are sometimes referred to as flying cars, but in reality, they are small electric planes that can hover and travel short distances. There are numerous companies with eVTOL prototypes. Some market leaders include Lilium, SkyDrive, and Airbus. Most of the prototypes that have been revealed so far are unmanned, but Japanese company SkyDrive, which is partially backed by Toyota, made history this summer with a successful piloted test flight. Elon Musk has plans for an electric plane, too. Tesla has only produced electric cars so far, but the company may make eVTOLs in the future. Musk will start working on an eVTOL prototype once more advanced batteries are available. Musk says a futuristic zero-emissions jet would require a battery pack with a density between 400 and 500 watt-hours per kilogram. Improved battery density is essential for Musk’s eVTOL prototype, but he also wants better batteries to be produced in greater volume. Many fans have been wondering what a Tesla eVTOL would look like. Tesla fanboy and UK-based industrial designer Tom Abbot-Davies posted a mock-up of a Tesla Model V eVTOL concept on Twitter. Musk saw the design and was very impressed. Once widely adopted, eVTOLs will be used as short-range air taxis in urban centers. They will also be used in search and rescue missions and as air ambulances. Here’s a look at Elon Musk’s plan for an electric plane and the competition he faces.
