A German company plans to make flying taxi that you can order through an app a reality in the next six years. Lilium is the German start up that is looking to bring this to life.
Co-founded in 2015 by Daniel Wiegand, Sebastian Born, Patrick Nathen and Matthias Meiner, Lilium GmbH is based near Munich, Germany – an internationally renowned high-tech hub for mobility. The founding team met while studying at the Technical University of Munich where they shared a common vision of revolutionizing the way we travel.
Today, Lilium has attracted more than $100m in funding and employs more than 300 people, bringing together a wealth of experience and expertise from across the world.
Munich-based startup Lilium unveiled its five-seater electric air taxi prototype on Thursday. The Lilium Jet, which conducted its first flight earlier this month, is part of an app-based flying taxi service that the company expects will be “fully-operational in various cities around the world by 2025.”
