With the obvious trend shifting to electric power, how can you still travel in style but in an eco-friendly way?
Introducing the new electric, private charter plane – Alice.
Now, I havent paid particular interest in this concept jet because we share the same name, it caught my eye because it is electric. This right here is the future of private travel. What’s more, is this is more affordable than you think. With the average Jet being around 600 USD per hour, this jet is set to be just over 200 USD per hour.
