Germany has successfully tested the first flying electric car Source:

The Dream that one day cars will be able to soar into the sky, many engineers and entrepreneurs. Although such a vehicle is unlikely to be available to everyone in the next 5-10 years, some companies have already achieved some success in this area. Take the Munich Lilium Aviation, which yesterday conducted a successful test of the first ever double of the electric vehicle with vertical takeoff.

An international team of more than 40 designers, engineers and enthusiasts worked to create The car Lilium Jet for several years. The vehicle is able to move through the air at speeds up to 300 kilometers per hour and the battery charge enough to cover the distance of just 300 kilometers. The Lilium Jet has a 10-metre wingspan and has a 36-th movable jet engines. Very important issues when designing the car is the safety of passengers and the possibility of Autonomous flight under control of the autopilot system.

"Inside our car you will find exactly the same battery as Tesla. At the same time, due to the unusual arrangement of Lilium wings of The Jet and the location of jet engines, the vehicle is much more effective compared to other aerial vehicles. It consumes an incredibly small amount of energy," — said in an interview with the head of the company Patrick Nathen.

At first, it is planned that The Lilium Jet will manage the people, but in the future they can be converted into a driverless taxi (something similar is already Uber). Also in the nearest plans of the company is to create a flying electric car, able to accommodate up to five passengers instead of two. All cars Lilium Aviation will be equipped with parachutes and a system of Flight Envelope Protection System that prevents strong deviations beyond the parameters of safe flight.
