Lilium puts eVTOL for sale on US market with EMC JET
Lilium has opened private sales of its eVTOL in the US market, in partnership with broker and management firm, EMC JET.
EMC JET will be Lilium’s exclusive private sales dealer in Texas until 2030 and it has made an initial commitment for five production slots.

Sebastien Borel, chief commercial officer at Lilium, said: “We are thrilled to partner with EMC JET as we embark on our mission to revolutionise regional air mobility in the United States. EMC JET’s proven track record of private premium market jet sales in the US and managing privately owned aircraft and exceptional customer service aligns seamlessly with Lilium’s vision of delivering an unparalleled flying experience to our potential customers.”
The Pioneer Edition is the first version of the Lilium Jet being sold to private individuals across the globe, according to makers.
