Wright Electric, McLaren, Bafang, Shell Eco Marathon.

Electric passenger plane in 10 years? London-Paris, New York-Boston, and Seoul-Jeju could all be routes served by an all-electric airplane within the decade if Wright Electric’s dream comes true, or better, if battery technology keeps up. The start-up’s jet has yet to go into development but is conceptualised for 150 passengers and journeys of less than 300 miles. Wright hopes to utilise a modular and thus exchangeable battery system and said it struck a partnership with EasyJet already.
