Force Traveller unplugged
From a first responder vehicle on an expressway to a conventional people or cargo transporter, Force Traveller has evolved in-tune with the changing market demands.
Force Motors launched a Smart Citibus at the Auto Expo 2016 by anticipating the infrastructural needs of a smart city. Based on a newer and wider (2.2 m wide) T2 platform, the Citibus is structured on a 4020 mm wheelbase, and can ferry 21 people apart from the driver. Typical of a feeder service bus that can manoeuvre through tighter spaces in a city unlike a 12 m long bus, the Smart Citibus is lighter, efficient and agile. Emerging out of a highly successful panel van that the Traveller is, the Smart Citibus is powered by a 129PS, 2.2-litre common-rail diesel engine (there is an option of a 80 PS, 2.6-litre CNG engine too) and features an intelligent passenger information system with sat-nav, jack knife door with low entry step among others. The Smart Citibus will add to the 1.5 lakh Travellers that have been sold till date.
A clear leader in the 16- to 19-seat panel van segment, an estimated 1200 to 1500 Travellers are sold every month on an average. They roll out of the factory at Pithampur near Indore, which was set up in 1987. Spread over an area of 6.85 lakh sq. m., the construction of the factory began in 1985 with the Government of India allowing new entrants to enter the light commercial vehicle segment. Existing manufacturers were allowed to expand capacities and modernise as well. It was decided after a considerable search, according to Dr. Abhaykumar Firodia, Chairman, Force Motors, to set up the Traveller plant at Pithampur in Dhar district near Indore. Dhar was the only district, south of the Vindhya mountains, which was designated as a ‘no industry’ district. The permission to expand and modernise was available only on the condition that the plant would be set up in a ‘no-industry’ district. Forced to go out of Pune, in retrospect, this was a good occurrence.
The Daimler connection
Producing a panel van derived LCV called the Matador, born out of a collaboration with Vidal & Sohn Tempo Werke of Germany, it was logical for Force Motor to turn to Daimler-Benz AG when the time to introduce a new product came. A series of mergers in the 70s saw Vidal & Sohn Tempo Werke being acquired by Daimler-Benz AG. The German share interest in Force Motors (called Bajaj Tempo Limited then) changed hands, and ended up with Mercedes-Benz. “When the question of expansion, modernisation and technology infusion came up in 1985, it was natural to approach Mercedes-Benz,” said Firodia. He stated, “After a detailed interaction with Daimler, it was decided to produce the Traveller Van – the T1 Transporter – in India.”
The Mercedes-Benz OM 616 diesel engine was already in regular production at Force Motors under license from Daimler. It was used to power the Matador. This engine was deemed fit for the Traveller, and, thus rolled out the first nine-seat Traveller structured over a 3050 mm wheelbase from Pithampur with the OM 616 motor located longitudinally at the front with the drive going to the rear wheels through a modern, smooth-shifting five-speed manual gearbox. Stress on localisation saw the driveline being localised quickly. Progressively body localisation (Traveller is a monocoque body construction) took place with investment in body tooling. “Daimler with their experience in setting up new plants and high technology manufacturing establishments supported the design, development, erection and commissioning of the factory at Pithampur,” mentioned Firodia.
Ahead of its time
The Traveller cut a premium image over the aging Matador. It was significantly costlier than the Matador even though the looks of the van were a big draw. “The German Deutsche Mark, which was at Rs 4.00 level in 1985, rose to Rs 20.00 level in 1989. This placed a huge stress on the costing and selling price of the Traveller. Body localisation would have meant enormous investment, and as imports meant very high import cost for imported pressed parts, it was decided to continue producing the Traveller in small numbers,” averred Firodia. Some 100 numbers were produced initially for a few years. Production rose. Simultaneously, strong localisation efforts with the setting up of a R&D and tool room at Pune, were exercised. Short wheelbases (3050 mm and 3350 mm) in high roof version were offered. Their strong structure, would help them endure the not so good roads in the country. Infrastructure was not as good then. The seating capacity increased to 14-seats. The phasing out of the Matador in 2000 saw the Traveller gain traction. Till then, it was not even preferred as a cargo carrier. There were many other options available. Over time, the rear-wheel drive layout, modern mechanicals, strong build, reliability, modern appearance, and comfort levels came to be appreciated. A small bonnet contributed to the sense of safety. The distinctive grille and inset lamps drew attention. A distinctive window-line marked the sides. The tail lights were placed in the pillars; two large doors hinged at the sides ensured easy access due to low floor height.
Evolution in-line with changing market needs
Staying true to its unitary body construction and robust mechanicals, the panel van, post 2005, gained new wheelbases at 3700 mm with 17-seats capacity, and 4020 mm with 20-seats capacity. A modern manufacturing infrastructure meant the Traveller body was electrophoretically painted from day one. The entire body could be immersed in an electrically charged primer paint. This has now given way to Cathodic Electro-Deposition (CED) and a Durr-based fully-automated paint line. “Expanding the capacity of a monocoque structure is tantamount to complete re-engineering of the body structure. This was made possible by strong Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) capability at the R&D. Substantial amount of tooling in terms of press tools, welding fixtures, etc., was achieved by the modern tool room,” stated Firodia.
In 2012, a 26-seat Traveller was developed. It involved the manufacture of a set of new, large tools. The entire floor, the entire roof, the entire front and rear walls would be larger and wider. They would all have to be separately tooled. Thus was born the T2 Traveller. Expressed Firodia, “The investment and the engineering effort in creating the wide body Travellers were made with a view to cater to the 26-seat passenger segment, and to provide a delivery van with higher volume and payload capacity.” If the T1 Traveller measures 1975 mm in width, the T2 Traveller measures 2225 mm. The T1 is had with a 3050 mm wheelbase, 3350 mm wheelbase, 3700 mm wheelbase and a 4020 mm wheelbase. The T2 is had with a 4020 mm wheelbase only. Flaunting a modern fascia with a horizontal slat grille that looks noticeably wider on the T2; the current model Traveller comes with clear lens head lamps. They are a single unit with the turn indicators integrated into them.
Playing many roles (as a passenger carrier that can ferry between nine and 26 people; as a school bus that can ferry between 12 and 37 pupils; as an ambulance that is designed for advanced life support, basic life support and for four stretchers at the same level; as a delivery van that would offer between nine cu m. of space and 17 cu m. of space, and as a city bus that ensures efficient last mile connectivity, the Force Traveller is truly diverse. It is exported to countries like Sri Lanka among others. Offering an advantage of letting people stand inside, courtesy the high roof, the Traveller, except for a choice of a flat roof in the 3050 mm wheelbase nine-seater version comes with a high roof. The T1 Travellers have 2×1 seating arrangement. The T2 Traveller offers a 2×2 seating arrangement. If the people carriers are flush with trim inside, and often customised by many buyers to their finer tastes, the cargo Travellers (termed as Traveller DV) come sans any roof trim inside. The cargo hold area behind the driver and co-passenger seat is separated by a ‘strong wall’.
Two engines power the Traveller. A 2.6-litre four-cylinder direct-injection diesel engine based on the OM 616, and a 2.2-litre (TD2200) double overhead cam common-rail diesel engine with dual mass flywheel in BS III and BS IV guise. Over time, the OM 616 engine has been tweaked to include a turbo and an inter-cooler. It produces 80 PS of power and 230 Nm of torque. The 2.2-litre engine is more modern of the two. Peppy and refined, it could be had with a variable geometry turbo. A 3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel engine is in the works. Not to let go, the 2.6-litre engine has been upgraded to include a Bosch common-rail injection system. The five-speed manual gearbox has been suitably modified to account for higher power and higher torque. Also on offer is a BS IV compliant 2.6-litre sequential injection CNG engine that does 78 hp of power and 180 Nm of torque.
The 2.6-litre engine is mated to a G18/5 transmission; the 2.6-litre common-rail injection engine is mated to a G28/5 transmission; the 2.2-litre common-rail injection engine is mated to a G32/5 transmission, and the soon to be offered 3.2-litre engine will come with a new, G33/5 transmission. Either gearbox offers good shift quality. Not exactly short or precise, but quite car-like none the less. Transmissions over time have been suitably tweaked. According to Firodia, significant engineering effort was involved in integrating high horse power engines. “The entire engineering was carried out in-house. The basic engineering designs of the TD 2200 engine and the G32 gearbox were in the 90s sourced from Mercedes-Benz, by way of separate technical licenses,” Firodia stated. To account for the higher power and torque output of the 2.6-litre common-rail injection engine, the gearbox has been suitably modified. The transmission gears have been grounded for higher strength. The mounting plate has been suitably modified.
Every stage of the Traveller’s manufacturing process reflects the use of technology. Big and heavy presses turn out large pressed sheet metal parts. The process of building a monocoque (unitary) structure begins with the welding of floor pans with a square tube cage underneath. This is followed by the marriage of the cowl, sides and the roof. There’s an amount of automation built into the body shop. The BIW is transported to the CED booth and is treated to a zinc phosphate treatment. Post the painting in robotised paint booth, the Traveller monocoque finds its way to the final assembly line. Sub-assembly lines feed sub-assemblies to the main line. A reflection of technology is also visible in the Traveller’s drivetrain as it is married to the body apart from the axles, wheels, trim, and various other bits down the final assembly line. The Traveller could be had with ABS, EBD, pneumatic rear suspension, and telematics; the T2 comes with all-wheel disc brakes.
The large driver’s door of the Traveller facilitates easier ingress. The seat is comfortable and the driving position is commanding. The view ahead through the large windscreen and past the small bonnet is uninterrupted. For a van that measures 6065 mm in length and 1975 mm in width, the Traveller feels compact. Moving away smartly, an amount of the sound from the 2.6-litre direct injection turbo-diesel engine does intrude into the cabin. Acceleration is linear. The pedal feels a bit stubborn, but yields results none the less. On the move the van tends to shrink around the driver. Capable of seating 17 people apart from the driver (17+D), this one could be had in four permutations and combinations. Available in a high roof configuration, this particular van, was fitted with high back seats. The steering is non-assisted. Turns at low speeds call for an amount of effort. Riding on 215/75 R15 tyres, an amount of steering effort is required even though it is considerably less while manoeuvering. Feeling refined, an amount of engine noise filters through. Vibes are kept well under control. This, despite the engine’s longitudinal positioning. A portion of the engine intrudes into the cabin, between the driver and the front co-passenger. Reflecting on the panel van’s ability to ferry people in good levels of comfort, the 17-seat Traveller could be had in eight guises differentiated mainly by the engines. So, apart from the 2.6-litre engine that is powering this van, the 17-seat Traveller could be had with a 2.2-litre common-rail turbo-diesel motor or a 79 PS 2.6-litre CNG engine mated to a five-speed G1-18 transmission. The most selling among the 120 Traveller iterations on offer, this van is a honest offering. The dash is simple and functional. The seating configuration is 2×1.
The air-conditioned T1 Traveller Super measures 5415 mm in length and 1975 mm in width. Crank the 90 hp 2.6-litre BS IV compliant common-rail turbo-diesel motor and it settles down to a refined idle. Coming closest (among the Traveller variants) to feeling like a car, the Super produces 250 Nm of torque between 1400 and 2000 rpm. Seating nine people in good comfort apart from the driver (9+D), it is a far cry from the earlier 17-seat model. The G28/5 five-speed gearbox feels smoother, and past the tall first gear, the second and third gears, bring out the peppy nature of the van. Impressive refinement levels, and a power assisted steering makes for an easy drive. The fairly compact dimensions add to the excitement of driving this van. Fitted with glued glass windows, factory fitted air-con, twin blowers, luxurious push back seats, ABS and EBD, the Super is truly impressive. The ride is pliant and handling is good. The van is fitted with a pneumatic rear suspension. The brakes, exerting a good bite, consist of ventilated discs at front and drums at the rear. Bring up the lighter side of the Traveller range, this is one van that would double up as a good activity vehicle and a comfortable large-family transporter.
The T2 is wide and long. From behind the wheel, it however does not feel as much. 250 mm wider than the T1, and fitted with two tyres at either end of the rear axle, making it a six-tyre vehicle, the T2, with a payload capacity of 2500 mm in a delivery van guise, feels easier to drive than anticipated. The view ahead is uninterrupted almost. The controls are within reach, and the design of the dash, though simple and functional, differs from that of the T1. Turn the key, and the 129 PS 2.2-litre variable geometry turbo-diesel engine comes to life and settles down to a steady idle. The G33/5 five-speed manual transmission supports easy shifts. Not quite peppy as the Super, the T2, feeling refined, takes off without any noticeable turbo lag. Acceleration is smooth and speeds build up predictably. The hydraulically assisted steering ensures easy manoeuvrability. The second and third cog find the most use in city driving conditions. The higher ratios are better kept for use on the highway. Delivering a pliant ride under a variety of conditions, courtesy the pneumatic rear suspension, the handling of the T2 is predictable. The brakes exert a good bite. They are discs all round, and are supported by ABS and EBD.
Over three decades of its existence, the Traveller has carved out a niche for itself. A clear leader in the 16- to 19-seater panel van market, it has set a benchmark. Looking young as ever, the Traveller reflects on the company’s focus to produce vehicles which are utilitarian and address the needs of the common man. Consider the 26-seat Traveller for example. According to Dr. Abhaykumar Firodia it is the largest monocoque passenger van anywhere in the world. It weighs one-tonne less than any competing van; offers spectacular fuel economy, handling ease, exceptional safety and comfort for the passengers.

Re: Force Motors Launches Traveller - 26. The World's Largest Monocoque Van. Thanks Visran. Even after an accident and in rest too, you posted this first time. I was thinking about posting the same. I found these on road some days before. One Standard and the school bus. I taken pictures too. But i was riding my bike and both vehicles were in an speed, i couldn't get a good snap. The things i was noticed , the seats comes in as 2+2 option, instead of 1+2 in earlier models and in rear end it has 2+1+2 seats it has 6 wheels and from sides it looks same as old one, but it has almost the same width of a route bus.

Force Traveller BS6 variants with price details
Travellers from Force Motors have been ruling city roads and outstation travel for quite some time, and this has been possible because of their versatility and inherent capabilities to adapt across multiple businesses and platforms. From serving as a tourist van, Traveller school bus, to an Ambulance, as a smart CitiBus and also as a Goods Carrier, the Force Traveller has touched across multiple domains. The Force Traveller, also widely referred to as Force Tempo Traveller by its customers, primarily falls under the category of Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs). Owing to its monocoque body structure and superior power to weight ratio, competitive Force Traveller price, mileage that is class leading in the segment compared to any chassis based bus, it is one of the most preferred choice for tour & travels segment.
Force Traveller is now BS6 compliant and comes with approx 200 mm longer semi forward design, produces almost 28% higher power than before, digital instrument cluster and more. The new Traveller BS6 is equipped with SCR technology of meeting emission norms, which means now you will need to refill DEF (liquid urea bases solution) apart from diesel. For our readers wondering about the seating capacity options and features available, the list of Force Traveller models and variants is as under:
Force Traveller 3350 BS6
I bet some of you might be wondering what does 3350 stand for in the name?

Museum of Tibetan Art opens powerful exhibit of American artist's work: 'A transformative force'
Posted: November 9, 2023 | Last updated: November 9, 2023
Nov. 8—STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art — whose mission is to present the art, culture and history of Tibet to a world audience to educate and inspire appreciation of Himalayan cultures — recently hosted the opening reception of "Synergies," featuring works by multi-disciplinary artist Cheryl R. Riley.
"Art wields a transformative force, carving out space for fresh creative prospects, new ideas, and cultivating vital connections between diverse communities and their environments, introducing novel perspectives and encounters," said Nico Simoni, executive director of the museum on Lighthouse Hill, during the inaugural contemporary exhibition.
Simoni continued: "Working within this theme, 'Synergies' symbolizes a convergence of individual, distinct expressions that give rise to a greater, collective energy. This exhibition navigates the conversations that have always been highlighted by the vision of this museum: cultural heritage, ancestral dialogue, and the exploration of the human spirit."
Riley, a multi-disciplinary artist, said her art explores similarities between seemingly disparate cultures viewed through the lens of gender, history, rituals, implements and symbols.
"I was raised in a very religious family, and I honor all faiths," she noted. "But this faith is especially beautiful to me, in its approach to civility, and to nature, and also to the acceptance of all life. I really am grateful for you to be able to see my work. All artists are just conduits of what the heavens and what our gifts and our spirits are. And our experiences in life bring them out in different ways."
Also in attendance was Laurie Cumbo, the New York City Commissioner of Cultural Affairs.
"I think with all that of the challenges we are facing in the world right now, this is one of the great spaces to be, with all of the challenges and uncertainty and not knowing which way or which direction," Cumbo said. "And I'm sure when you all came in this room, when you came into this space, those challenges probably faded from your mind, on that moment in time.
"And sometimes we have to go into spaces in places that heal us that are sacred, that allow us to be together with one another, and to be in that diversity that makes New York City the greatest place in the world. And so we are that ultimate experiment of living together, of sharing space together, of our children going to school together and of us being able to come out and celebrate the incredible work of Cheryl Riley. I am so honored to be here with you tonight."
The unique exhibit features an assortment of artworks, including paintings, sculptures, installations, mixed-media pieces and more, offering an enchanting multi-sensory encounter.
Included within the exhibit are works from Riley's series "Glyphs" (2017), a visual collection of Sci-Fi/Afro-Futurist symbols painted using gouache and metallic ink on pages extracted from a 1957 encyclopedia.
Simoni explains that Riley brings to life the stories, struggles and triumphs of the African-American experience.
"Miss Riley's artistic discourse intends to honor a matriarchal tradition, confront normative ideas and encourage thoughtful reflection on woman empowerment, and re-appropriation. Now, you might wonder, how does Miss Riley's art work relate to the Tibetan people? African-Americans have faced immense challenges throughout their history. The unique culture, tradition, and way of life have all been threatened by cultural suppression, and displacement. This theme correlates strongly with the plight of the Tibetan people who have fought tirelessly to preserve their distinct heritage in the face of adversity."
Also showcased is "Kaleidoscopes" (2018), which evolved from the "Glyphs" series. A centerpiece of Riley's collection, "Strata" (2022), translates into a testament of her artistic vision and philosophical exploration.
The exhibit will be ongoing until early December.
Further information on the Tibetan Museum and additional information regarding the exhibit visit www.tibetanmuseum.org or phone the museum office at 718 987-3500 Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art is located at 338 Lighthouse Ave.
The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art — founded by Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), an important collector and respected expert — reflects the visions of the Potala Palace of Lhasa, Tibet, containing unique artifacts reflecting art, history, culture, and spirituality of their homelands, and represents the first Himalayan-style architecture to be built in the U.S.
Since its opening in 1947, the museum has welcomed scholars, cultural envoys, community members, and famously H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama in 1991, for exchange of knowledge, arts and culture and preservation of memory for generations to come.
The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art preserves its unique collection of rare and sacred artifacts and provides careful stewardship of its historic buildings and gardens.
In addition to presenting Jacques Marchais' history, it is the intention of the museum to offer visitors an understanding of Tibet and the Himalayan region.

Electric Planes, Once a Fantasy, Start to Take to the Skies
How a small plane’s 16-day trip from Vermont to Florida might foreshadow a new era of battery-powered air travel long considered implausible.
By Niraj Chokshi
Photographs and Video by Tony Cenicola
Niraj Chokshi covers the aviation industry and reported from Burlington, Vt.
- Published Nov. 3, 2023 Updated Nov. 4, 2023
Chris Caputo stood on the tarmac at Burlington International Airport in Vermont in early October and looked to the clouds in the distance. He had piloted military and commercial aircraft over a long career, racking up thousands of flight hours, but the trip he was about to take would be very different.
That’s because the airplane Mr. Caputo would fly runs on batteries. Over the next 16 days, he and his colleagues flew the plane, a CX300 built by their employer, Beta Technologies, down the East Coast. They would make nearly two dozen stops to rest and recharge, flying through congested airspace over Boston, New York, Washington and other cities.
When the journey came to an end in Florida, Beta handed the plane over to the Air Force, which will experiment with it over the next few months. The trip offered a vision of what aviation could look like years from now — one in which the skies are filled with aircraft that do not emit the greenhouse gases that are dangerously warming up the Earth.
“We’re doing some really meaningful work for our state, our country and the planet,” Mr. Caputo said. “It’s hard not to want to be a part of it.”
A Flurry of Activity
For most of aviation history, electric aircraft have been little more than a fantasy. But technological advancements, particularly in batteries, and billions of dollars of investment have helped make short-distance electric air travel feasible — and, its backers hope, commercially viable.
Beta, which is privately held, has raised more than $800 million from investors like Fidelity, Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund and the private equity firm TPG Capital. The company employs about 600 people, mostly in Vermont, and recently finished building a factory in Burlington where it plans to mass produce its aircraft, which have yet to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The first will be the CX300, a sleek, futuristic plane with a 50-foot wingspan, large curved windows and a rear propeller. That plane is designed to carry about 1,250 pounds of cargo and will be followed soon after by the A250, which shares about 80 percent of the CX300’s design and is outfitted with lift rotors to take off and land like a helicopter. Both aircraft, which Beta markets as the Alia, will eventually carry passengers, the company says.
Beta is one of many companies working on electric aviation. In California, Joby Aviation and Archer Aviation are developing battery-powered aircraft capable of vertical flight that, they say, will ferry a handful of passengers short distances. Those companies have backers like Toyota, Stellantis, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and large investment firms. Established manufacturers like Airbus, Boeing and Embraer are also working on electric aircraft.
The U.S. government has mobilized behind the industry, too. The F.A.A. aims to support operations of aircraft that use new means of propulsion at scale in one or more places by 2028. And the Air Force is awarding contracts and testing vehicles , including Beta’s CX300 and an aircraft that Joby delivered to Edwards Air Force Base in California in September.
‘Almost One With the Plane’
Beta’s plane is not as large and powerful as the jets that Mr. Caputo flew for the Air Force, Air National Guard or Delta. But what it lacks in heft, it makes up for in charm, he said, noting that the airplane is incredibly quiet and responsive, making it a pleasure to fly.
“You’re almost one with the plane,” Mr. Caputo said, adding later: “You can kind of hear and feel the air going across the flight control surfaces. We wear helmets right now because it’s experimental and safety is paramount, but we can literally take the helmets off in the aircraft and just talk to one another.”
Mr. Caputo said the CX300 and other electric aircraft could open up new opportunities, like better connecting rural areas that have little or no direct air service.
Beta’s airplane has flown as far as 386 miles on a single charge, but the company said it expected its customers to generally use it to carry out trips of 100 to 150 miles. The plane’s journey to Florida was allowed under limited authority granted by the F.A.A.
In addition to producing no emissions, electric aircraft are designed to be simpler to operate and maintain than conventional helicopters and planes. But they are not expected to take to the skies in large numbers for years. Initially, their trips are likely to be short — from Manhattan to Kennedy International Airport, for example, or Burlington to Syracuse, N.Y.
Modern batteries can support limited range and weight. As a result, the aircraft that they power can generally carry only a handful of passengers, or the equivalent load in cargo.
Early on, electric aircraft are expected to compete mainly with helicopters and cars and trucks. In cities, widespread flights won’t be possible without expanded infrastructure like vertical landing and takeoff sites and public support. The cost of producing such aircraft will also be high to start, limiting their use to the well-heeled and to critical services like medical evacuations, experts said.
In some ways, the challenge and the promise of electric aviation today are like those of the automobile at the turn of the 20th century, said Kevin Michaels, managing director of AeroDynamic Advisory, an aviation consulting firm.
“You had several hundred manufacturers around the world, all with their own unique approaches to making these machines, but you didn’t have the roads, you didn’t have traffic lights, you didn’t have insurance,” he said. But, he added, the industry eventually found its way. “Things settled down 20 years later, and eventually costs fell, and winners emerged. And it changed the way things were done, the way people lived.”
Aiming to Earn Trust
Kyle Clark, Beta’s founder, is attuned to those concerns, which is why, he said, Beta has taken a more methodical approach.
“I get it, the industry has a trust issue,” he said. “It’s too much change, too quick, in an industry that has an exceptionally high standard of safety.”
The company plans first to win F.A.A. certification next year for a motor it has developed, followed by approvals of its first and second aircraft in subsequent years. The CX300 will use runways to move cargo, avoiding the need for new infrastructure, Mr. Clark said.
That approach has been endorsed by several customers, according to Beta, including the shipping giant UPS and United Therapeutics, which plans to use the vehicles to transport organs for transplant. Bristow Group, another customer, plans to use the aircraft the way it uses helicopters today, to transport goods and people to offshore energy installations, run search and rescue missions for governments, and for other purposes.
Bristow, which is working with eight companies developing next-generation aircraft, expects the vehicles to create new opportunities because they are quieter than helicopters and are expected to be 60 to 70 percent cheaper to operate, according to David Stepanek, an executive vice president at Bristow.
In addition to building aircraft, Beta is establishing a network of chargers that can power its aircraft as well as cars, trucks and other vehicles. More than a dozen have been set up, including one at the Air Force site in Florida, making it the military’s first electric aircraft charging station .
The company also built a prototype landing site for aircraft capable of vertical flight, which sits atop repurposed shipping containers, which house energy storage and a small living space for pilots to rest between trips.
The day that Beta’s aircraft left Burlington in October, Mr. Caputo flew it on two legs, arriving at sunset at Griffiss International Airport in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, near where he grew up. He ordered Italian food for the Beta team from a restaurant he used to frequent with his family, and his mother drove out to see the aircraft in person for the first time. The next morning, he flew the plane to Syracuse, N.Y., and handed it over to colleagues who would fly it the rest of the way.
Much of the popular discussion about electric aircraft revolves around the idea that they will effectively be used as flying cars to whiz people around big cities. In the near future, though, they may just as likely be used to ferry goods and passengers outside dense urban areas, in places like upstate New York and Vermont.
“To me, it’s going to have a really meaningful impact on how we move organs and goods and services,” he said, “and reconnect the rural parts of America that I think get often forgotten.”

Israeli troops encircling Gaza City expected to enter in force within 48 hours
Gaza split into two parts, says Israel, as US sends missile-carrying submarine to Middle East
- Israel-Hamas war: latest updates
The Israeli military says it has completely encircled Gaza City after more than a week of heavy fighting, in effect severing the territory into two, as Israeli ground troops appeared poised to enter the dense urban sprawl from the south.
What seemed to be the beginning of the second stage of the Israeli ground operation was accompanied by a barrage of 16 rockets fired from southern Lebanon towards the Israeli city of Haifa on Monday afternoon.
The rocket fire, for which Hamas claimed responsibility, reached the farthest distance of any projectiles from the Lebanese side of the border fired by either the Palestinian militant group or Hezbollah, the Iran-backed Lebanese militia – a sign that escalation on Israel’s northern front is still an active threat even as fighting intensifies in Gaza.
Israel’s encirclement of Gaza City comes a month after Hamas conducted its murderous rampage across southern Israel on 7 October, killing 1,400 Israelis and taking about 240 people hostage, the worst attack in the country’s history. Israel swiftly said it was at war with Hamas and the toll on civilians in Gaza has been horrifying.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, warned that the Gaza Strip was becoming “a graveyard for children” as he called again for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire .
“We must act now to find a way out of this brutal, awful, agonising dead end of destruction,” Guterres told reporters at the UN. “Gaza is becoming a graveyard for children. Hundreds of girls and boys are reportedly being killed or injured every day.”
The Hamas-run local health authority said more than 10,000 Palestinians had been killed by airstrikes and artillery fire. The territory’s 2.3 million civilians have no safe place to go, but with food, water, fuel and medical supplies dwindling, international calls for a humanitarian pause or ceasefire have been firmly rejected by Israel, which has vowed to crush the militants’ operational capabilities.
Moving under the cover of intensive aerial bombardments on Sunday night from air, land and sea – accompanied by a communications blackout – Israeli troops moved to surround Gaza City as Hamas militants were reported to have pulled back to prepared positions deeper in the densely packed territory.
Sunday’s airstrikes were the most ferocious on the territory since the war broke out. It was not immediately clear what had been hit in the centre of Gaza City, as huge plumes of fire and smoke rose into the night air.
“Today there is north Gaza and south Gaza,” R Adm Daniel Hagari said, calling it a “significant stage” in Israel’s war against the Hamas militant group ruling the territory. Israeli media reported that troops were expected to enter Gaza City in force within the next 48 hours.
The fate of the hostages – of whom the only signs of life came in a video released by Hamas showing three women – also complicates the offensive. On Tuesday, a month since their abduction, the families are expected to protest at the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem, the holiest site in Judaism, as well as at the Knesset, over what they say are inadequate efforts to reach a deal with Hamas to release their loved ones.
The latest moves on the ground in the Gaza Strip were accompanied by mounting speculation over the kind of fighting that would unfold in Gaza City’s streets, amid suggestions that the Israel Defence Forces would try to avoid costly warfare within Hamas’s tunnel system.
In a briefing with reporters on Monday, the IDF spokesperson, Lt Col Richard Hecht, said the army was striving to maintain humanitarian corridors so that people could flee to the south of the territory, but acknowledged that if Hamas was believed to be using the roads, the IDF would not hesitate to attack there.
He also echoed comments by senior IDF commanders that Hamas was using medical infrastructure, including Gaza City’s Dar al-Shifa, Indonesian and Qatari hospitals, to hide underground and launch rocket salvoes.
In response to a question about whether Israel was now treating the hospitals as military targets, Hecht said: “This is one of our biggest challenges. We haven’t struck any hospitals yet. When it comes, we will discuss it.”
The New York Times quoted officials as saying the White House had sent messages to Iran and Hezbollah that the US would be prepared to intervene militarily if they joined Hamas in attacking Israel. On Sunday, the US defence secretary, Lloyd Austin, reiterated the US position that it was committed to deterring “any state or non-state actor seeking to escalate this conflict”. An Ohio-class guided missile-carrying submarine has been sent to the region.
In a phone call on Monday with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, the US president, Joe Biden, repeated a request to protect Palestinians, but there were few signs that the calls for restraint were being heard.
Asked about civilian casualties on Monday, a White House spokesperson said: “We have seen some indications that there are efforts being applied in certain scenarios to try to minimise, but I don’t want to overstate that.”
In another sign of widening unrest, a Palestinian man stabbed and wounded two members of Israel’s paramilitary border police in East Jerusalem before being shot dead, according to police.
Tensions remain high with Lebanon, where on Sunday an Israeli strike on a car in the south of the country killed three children and their grandmother, Lebanese authorities said. Israel’s chief military spokesperson said the military had attacked “terrorist targets of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon” in response to a missile attack against tanks that killed an Israeli citizen.
About 1.5 million Palestinians, or approximately 70% of Gaza’s population, are estimated to have fled their homes since the war began, following Israeli orders to evacuate to “safe zones” in the southern half of the strip, which have still been bombed. UN officials say civilians are surviving on two pieces of bread a day, made from flour from their stores, and access to clean water is a constant problem. Another 75 aid trucks made it into Gaza via Egypt on Sunday, bringing the total to 525 since 21 October, although aid agencies say the supplies are a fraction of what is needed to stave off humanitarian disaster. On Monday, evacuations of foreigners, dual nationals and wounded Palestinians resumed, the Hamas government said.
The IDF said that water and humanitarian goods were available in the south of Gaza, but that Hamas was impeding convoys by firing on them.
Hazem al-Enezi, the director of an orphanage in Gaza City housing 27 children, said he and the institute’s sole remaining staff member had managed to evacuate the children to an apartment belonging to a friend in the south of Gaza City on Friday after ground fighting drew too close to the building.
They moved the children in civilian cars with the help of neighbours, beset by artillery fire. One of the vehicles was running on cooking fuel rather than petrol as dwindling fuel supplies were directed to keeping hospital generators functioning.
“I prayed to God we would make it,” he said. “We have moved, but we don’t have that many supplies for the young children.”
Amid mounting diplomatic efforts by the US to secure a humanitarian pause in the fighting, the US secretary of state, Antony Blinken , met the Turkish foreign minister, Hakan Fidan, for talks in Ankara.
The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan , travelled across Turkey’s remote north-east on Monday in an apparent snub of Washington’s top diplomat.
The US diplomat has been facing a chorus of Arab calls to support an immediate ceasefire. Foreign ministers from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates met Blinken in Amman on Saturday and also urged him to persuade Israel to agree to a ceasefire. Blinken visited Iraq on Sunday and held talks with the prime minister, Mohammed al-Sudani.
Jordan’s military airdropped urgent medical aid to a Jordanian field hospital in Gaza early on Monday, according to a social post from Jordan’s king and reports in state media.

Blizzards in China's northeast ground flights, force school closures
Snow removal vehicles move on a street amid a blizzard in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, China. cnsphoto via REUTERS Acquire Licensing Rights
BEIJING, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Unseasonably cold weather and blizzards hit northeast China on Monday, forcing hundreds of flights to be rescheduled and closing schools as several cities issued heightened weather alerts and warned people to stay indoors.
With snowfall of as much as 25 centimetres, over 90% of expressway entrances in Jilin province had been closed as of 7 p.m. (1100GMT), state television CCTV said.
In the country's northernmost province Heilongjiang, the local railway operator halted 51 passenger lines over safety concerns.
A gymnasium in Heilongjiang's Jiamusi city collapsed, trapping three inside, according to CCTV.
State-run Jimu News said there were children at the venue at the time of the incident. It is unclear if the collapse was related to the snowfall, the report said. A rescue operation is underway.
Schools, kindergartens, and off-campus training institutions in most parts of Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang, will remain suspended on Tuesday, after they were cancelled on Monday, CCTV said.
China's national weather forecaster renewed its orange blizzard alert - the second highest tier of its color-coded warning system - at 6 p.m, as more snow is expected from Monday night to Tuesday in parts of Jilin and Heilongjiang.
Earlier on Monday, 405 flights were cancelled at Harbin Taiping International Airport, according to data from third-party travel app Flight Master.
Many flights were also cancelled in Jilin and Liaoning provinces, and in the Inner Mongolia region, Flight Master showed.
Video from a local newspaper showed travellers stranded in a railway station as heavy snow lashed Jilin's Changchun city, with some trains from the city suspended.
China's weather authority warned of a drastic drop in temperature in coming days, along with blizzards, state media reported.
"The season changed outside overnight," a netizen from Heilongjiang complained on Weibo, China's popular social media platform.
Provinces and cities upgraded weather response protocols, with heavy snowfall expected in parts of Inner Mongolia, and Hebei, Jilin and Liaoning provinces, China Daily reported.
On Monday, Inner Mongolia, and Liaoning and Jilin provinces also suspended schools.
Late on Sunday, Heilongjiang issued a red alert - the country's highest weather advisory - as cities in the province were expected to see 20 mm (0.787 inches) to 40 mm (1.575 inches) of blizzard precipitation into Monday evening, China Daily reported.
The Central Meteorological Observatory said some areas could see 8-10 cm (3.14 to 3.94 inches) of snow and temperatures in many regions would drop sharply.
In Harbin, social media video footage showed residents battling gale force winds and sliding and stumbling as they made their way down icy streets.
The cold forced governments in Beijing and Tianjin to make preparations to supply heat earlier than usual, according to city government notices.
Over the past week, northern China has experienced unseasonably odd contrasts in weather from smog to logging the second-warmest October in decades and then a sharp drop in temperatures over the weekend.
