The world’s largest all-electric plane on Thursday took its first successful flight, which lasted for about 30 minutes.

The ‘eCaravan’ aircraft is a Cessna 208 Caravan plane, which was fitted with a 750-horsepower electric motor made by US-based startup MagniX and modified by aerospace engineering firm AeroTEC.

The aircraft, which is about 37 feet long, typically seats nine passengers.
