Heart Aerospace, the Swedish start-up company that designs and builds all-electric aircraft, has unveiled its electric drivetrain and battery technology. This is the latest milestone in the company’s mission to build a 19-seater electric regional airliner, certified for commercial operations by 2025 and completely fossil fuel-free. Founded in 2018, Heart Aerospace was spun out of the Electric Air Travel in Sweden (ELISE) project, funded by the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova. As battery efficiency improves, Heart Aerospace is targeting all short-haul air travel under 2,000 km for electrification. Globally, this accounts for 85% of departures and 43% of carbon dioxide emissions.
