Flying taxi startup Lilium GmbH has partnered with another German company, battery specialist Customcells GmbH, to power its planned seven-seater e-jet.

Customcells, which has a joint venture with sports-car maker Porsche AG, will make lithium-ion batteries for the Lilium craft targeted for launch in 2024. The power units will be made in Germany, as companies across Europe seek to reduce their reliance on Chinese battery technology.
