The Vision VTOL is designed specifically for the imminent evolution of electric power storage and energy breakthroughs. This is an area that we have been working very closely with for years at the cutting edge. Transportation is about to take a massive leap forward.
Current Lithium batteries are the only remaining limit to range and cost of electric vehicles. At the same time a quiet revolution in aviation has occurred. There are now more quadcopters and multirotors flying than any other type of aircraft. The only reason why full size electric multirotors are not practical yet is because of range.
Electric motors are inevitably more reliable than turbines or piston engines by nature with only one moving part. The simplicity of electric quadcopters is that there is no need for control surfaces, wings, fuel systems or other limitations of conventional aircraft. The electronic controls, software and sensors are the same for a drone, single seat or flying home and already fully developed. This enables a huge advantage over current aviation in safety, cost, reliability and scalability.
At only 4 times current Lithium polymer density, the Vision becomes practical with a 4 hour range. We are working with 30 times current density and storage life expectancy. This allows transcontinental range at high speed and will inevitably make electric aviation by far the most practical form of transportation.
Imagine a car with a 10,000 mile range. Now imagine what that really means. With a similar advance in electric aviation, roads and even airports can become almost obsolete.
The Vision is the beginning of a new breed of transportation that is specifically designed for ultra long range electric power and storage – point to point transportation with unprecedented safety and luxury. First designed over 10 years ago, all technologies required are now fully developed.
Welcome to the future.
