PHOENIX -E... how much ($) and how many are flying ?
Hello Henryk! Electric Phoenix costs over 150K EUR. Prices of electric airplanes like Pipistrel Velis or our Phoenix are depending on prices of batteries and as I mentionned before - every kWh of energy in batteries for airplanes costs over 1 000 EUR (this is not price for battery cells - it is price for professional complete battery solution incl. BMS, wiring, case etc.).
Unfortunatelly situation will be worst.... I already received info that prices of typical Li-Ion cells (18650 or 21700) are growing significantly.

=in CONTRARY to 2021 prognosis ...!? (<100 $/kWh)
The automotive industry will get much lower prices as they need much more batteries in compare with aviation industry. Also - in aviation are certification rules harder = complete battery will be more expensive for airplanes in compare with cars.
Actually is also influence of COVID so I hope that price of cells will go down as soon as possible.
