Electric Airbus

Airbus E-FAN is a small experimental aircraft powered entirely by electricity.
‘Fuel’ cost cuts for a one-hour flight: $55 –> $16
120 lithium-ion polymer battery cells, stored in the wings
Two 30 kilowatt engines –> 80 hp –> 136 mph top speed.
Current range: 30 minutes. Airbus is working to extend that to over an hour.
