Death of internal combustion: 1000 kilometers EV range
Electric aircraft have got there. Cars next. With no road resistance, the best electric aircraft, the Bye Aerospace eFlyer, achieves 1000km with its solar wing option. This range will be the final nail in the coffin of internal combustion cars. It is longer than some of them offer. With gasoline stations shutting down, guess who then gets range anxiety! See the IDTechEx reports, "Electric Vehicles 2020-2030" forecasting premium solar cars, mainstream solar cars and 98 other EV categories: unique detail. See also the IDTechEx report, "Manned Electric Aircraft 2020-2030".
Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation
It is easy to say that, although small electric aircraft are at last selling, they are a negligible part of the overall aircraft market. Mistake. They will work up from the bottom to be mainstream. Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce know this, but many others are sleeping through the future. Some of the successes are from small companies.
Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?
How We Shall Cope with a Shortage of Lithium-ion Batteries
At some stage in the next ten year, there is likely to be a shortage of lithium-ion batteries. Included in this article are possible reasons and proposed solutions.
Electric Light Aircraft Order Rush: Deeply Significant
Not long ago it was just dreams. Small internal-combustion aircraft provide taxi services, serve the declining market for private flying and a few other needs. Some are over 30 years old because total cost of ownership is an issue. Designing electric replacements seemed like entering a dust bowl.
Local Pollution Much More Dangerous than Realised
Global warming has something like a consensus on action, with tightening carbon dioxide emissions laws to 2030, read on to find out IDTechEx take on it.

Off Grid Goes Mega
The decline in off grid electricity production as a percentage of all electricity production is being reversed. Savvy industrialists are onto this.
Electric Vehicles: Full 1.5 trillion dollar picture at last
The "IDTechEx Show!" November 15-16 in Santa Clara, California brings the electric vehicle picture alive showing the Terrafugia flying car, a presentation by the most admired manufacturer of single propeller electric aircraft Bye Aerospace and a California State University talk on biomimetic aircraft.
Manned Electric Aircraft: Progress and Potential
Recently, there has been a sharp increase in development activity with electric aircraft, as examined in the new report from IDTechEx Research, Manned Electric Aircraft 2017-2027.
