Electric or hybrid air transportation developments

There have been a few threads over time on electric airplanes, usually on really specific technologies or projects only. Recently, freebeard posted on the demise of the Airbus/RR electric-hybrid testbed and remarked he could not find a general thread for it. I am curious about this topic, so I thought I would create a general thread on it and see if the thread "takes off" .... a place to aggregate and discuss news and developments.

A "government support" type story about a NASA spinoff project due to fly in 2020:
https://spinoff.nasa.gov/Spinoff2019/t_1.html

A "local guy" story about an EV Aircraft company:

A "future vision" kind of piece:

Apparently, we might get to be The Jetsons someday.

If someone finds a thread that I missed, let me know. I hope the mods will just merge this into that if it exists...

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
