An EV Airliner? What is this?

Do you think you will fly in an electric airliner someday?

In September 2022, an odd-looking airplane possibly achieves an important aviation milestone.

It’s the first flight of Eviation Aircraft’s Alice, a technology-demonstrator that may lead to versions for regional airline, cargo, and executive travel.

Alice is battery-powered like a Tesla or Rivian. Instead of wheels there are two propellers, each driven by a 700 kW electric motor.

Batteries are a huge challenge for electrically-powered flight and it is not clear if the technology has advanced enough to make Alice-type aircraft viable.

Will performance, like range, payload, recharging, along with safety and cost, uh, fly in the global market?

Eviation claims future versions of Alice will fly from 278 km (150 nm) to 463 km (250 nm), at a maximum operating speed of 260 knots.
