A team at the University of Stuttgart has completed the maiden flight of a new electric flying machine they have named eGenius. The aircraft successfully completed a 20-minute flight followed by a two-and-a-half hour trip.
The eGenius is capable of hitting 235 km/h (146 MPH) for up to 400 kilometers (248.5 miles). It is powered by a 60-kilowatt motor, weighs 850 kilograms (1,874 pounds), and has some big backing from the likes of Airbus.
