Tesla Electric Airplane? Elon Musk sees electric aircraft in 5 years
Tesla CEO Elon Musk started discussing the potential for electric airplanes, which he thinks could be viable in about 5 years. Could a Tesla airplane be in Musk’s plans? We are already starting to see electric airplane programs, like the Pipistrel Alpha Electro all-electric plane and the Siemens and Magnus’ eFusion, but battery technology still needs to improve in order to have commercial aircraft like we have today.
