German startup Lilium has conducted the first flight of its electric aircraft.
It can take off vertically and fly about 190 miles.
Its batteries power 36 electric jet engines that can swivel forwards to power horizontal flight.
Quiet, emission-free, and easy to fly, Lilium hopes it will revolutionize short-haul air travel.
The company plans to own and operate its own fleet of air taxis.
Electric flight is an increasingly hot area for innovation.
This is one concept from European aerospace giant Airbus.
It's also sponsoring an electric air race series to help spur innovation.
Numerous other projects are under way at startups around the world.
Next month's Paris Air Show will see the official unveiling of this.
The Alice business aircraft is being developed by Israeli startup Eviation.
They aim to put the plane in service by 2022, and say it will fly up to 650 miles on a single charge.
But all these projects face the same challenge.
Skeptics say heavy batteries mean electric planes will never beat the power and range of conventional jets.
