The co-founder and CEO of InoBat Auto, Marián Boček, sees this partnership as a confirmation that InoBat is on the right track. In two and a half years, InoBat has reached product, production capacity and signed partnership agreements with impressive customers such as Lilium.
"Lilium's ambition is to revolutionize air transport. They are constantly innovating, which is why they are a natural partner for us on the way to making Slovakia a leader in electromobility. We are happy to work with industry players who share our vision of sustainability. It is an important step forward on our way to make the transition to electric transport not only a reality, but also a new standard."
Lilium's COO, Yves Yemsi, explains that batteries are extremely important to their plans.
"Although we have already selected and contracted partners for technology and battery production, we have no plans to rest on our laurels. Therefore, we are constantly actively monitoring technological developments and have decided to enter into an agreement with InoBat with the intention of exploring cooperation in the field of production and supply in the future."
Lilium plans to launch the first electric plane with zero emissions in 2024. InoBat batteries, which are custom built, should offer Lilium jets a long range thanks to higher energy density with faster charging time compared to other players in the market.
