Israeli Eviation Unveils Electric Aircraft

The company has debuted its Alice commuter aircraft prototype at the Paris Air Show. Test flights are expected to begin in the upcoming months

Israel-based Eviation is making the global public debut of its all-electric nine-passenger Alice commuter aircraft prototype this week at the Paris Air Show.

Alice is currently one of the largest aircraft to solely run on electric power, according to AINonline. Eviation has teamed up with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) on research and development of the commuter aircraft. The company hopes to fly the aircraft in the upcoming months.

Powering the Alice are Siemens motors, though Eviation announced a second engine option for the MagniX engine in late April, the report adds.
