Our Story

Electric Flytrain was founded in 2019 by the three co-founders Tobias, Simon and Jonas with the mission to accelerate the transition to sustainable mobility.

Together the founders combine decades of experience regarding design of electric powertrains from the automotive industry (Tesla, BMW, Siemens) and international startup experience.

Since the foundation, Electric Flytrain successfully completed several development contracts with aircraft and UAV manufacturers, initiated important partnerships, developed its first hybrid electric powertrain product and onboarded world-class talent.
