Lilium Starts Production of Battery Packs


The company Lilium, a pioneer in developing the world’s first fully electric vertical take-off and landing jet (eVTOL), has officially commenced the production of aviation-compatible battery packs. These batteries are intended to power the Lilium Jet on its maiden flight towards the end of 2024.

Lilium’s battery packs are composed of lithium-ion cells with silicon-dominated anodes. Compared to conventional graphite anode cells, these offer increased energy, performance, and fast-charging capabilities. Automotive manufacturers such as Mercedes, Porsche, and GM have already expressed interest in this technology and plan to integrate it into their premium electric vehicles, as explained in a press release by Lilium. The battery packs by Lilium are designed to meet stringent safety standards set by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), particularly regarding impact resistance, heat resistance, containment, and redundancy.

The assembly of Lilium Jet battery packs takes place in the specially constructed battery factory at Lilium’s headquarters near Munich. Advanced digital tools are employed to ensure precise process control, efficient data collection, and traceability. Lilium received support from suppliers with extensive experience in battery industrialization, particularly in the automotive sector, during the development of the assembly line and initial production ramp-up.
