Charged EVs | Lilium orders 120 Star Charge chargers for electric aviation

Munich-headquartered Lilium, developer of an eVTOL jet, has partnered with Singapore-based charging infrastructure producer Star Charge to develop and provide charging systems for the Lilium Jet. 

The aircraft went into production in late 2023 following Design Organisation Approval by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It is expected to enter service in 2026.

Lilium has ordered 120 of Star Charge’s CCS-compliant units with liquid-cooled charging cables for its test aircraft and maintenance and delivery center activities. Lilium will also provide charging stations to customers with vertiports.

“Our partnership with Star Charge will support the Lilium Jet’s development and certification along with our customers’ ground infrastructure development,” said Lilium CCO Sebastien Borel.
