Electric Airplane “Panthera” by Pipstrel

The Pipistrel Panthera 4-seater aircraft has been unveiled at the Aero Expo in Freidrichshafen, Germany.This compact plane can zoom in the skies at 200 knots of speed, but consuming 41% less fuel as compared to anything within the competing league. It can be ordered with a standard, albeit highly efficient, gas engine. But it’s also available in an all-electric model, which can cover a distance of 400 km on a single charge and is supported by the state-of-the-art battery system for the environmentally conscious high-flyers. Besides a slick streamlined design, the inside of the Panthera includes generously sized touchscreen aviation instruments, front seats that look like they were lifted from a luxury sports car, and extra wide back seats for added passenger comfort. There’s also plenty of storage space for luggage.
