Electric Vehicles in the Sky: Air Canada Orders 30 Plug-In Planes (www.breitbart.com)

Electric vehicles are set to take to the skies, with Air Canada announcing on Thursday that it has ordered 30 plug-in planes from the Swedish electric aircraft startup company, Heart Aerospace. The electric planes are expected to have an operational range of just 124 to 248 miles per charge.

Air Canada will be acquiring 30 ES-30 electric-hybrid regional aircraft, which will have the capacity for up to 30 passengers to travel between 124 and 248 miles, the company said in a press release on Thursday.

“The revolutionary regional aircraft, expected to enter service in 2028, will generate zero emissions flying on battery power and yield significant operational savings and benefits,” Air Canada said. “Under the agreement, Air Canada has also acquired a US$5 million equity stake in Heart Aerospace.” Of course, the claim of “zero emissions” from electric vehicles is a myth when emissions related to the production of batteries are taken into account.
