Laboratory Tours of e-Sling project at Dübendorf Innovationspark 

Wednesday 23rd March 2022: 13:45 – 14:45 

Delegates will have the opportunity to travel to Dübendorf Innovationspark to visit the e-Sling project team.

The e-Sling is based on a Sling TSi, which has been adapted for electrification. Equipped with a modular battery system, the e-Sling will offer a range of 200 km for four people.

The “e-Sling” focus project team set itself the goal of developing the first four-seater electric aircraft that is optimised for different flight distances thanks to its modular battery system. In its basic configuration, it is expected to offer a range of 250 km for four passengers. Twelve ETH students are working on the project, in which they electrified an existing aircraft from South African manufacturer Sling and equipped it with an innovative cooling system. Additionally, an electric motor and high-performance inverter were also developed for the new electric drive train. The team painted the small aircraft white and applied lightning bolts to it, thereby already revealing from the outside that the “e-Sling” is special.
