This All-Electric Water Taxi Could Revolutionize Green Transportation

It could soon be just as easy to travel on water as it is to take an Uber through a busy downtown neighborhood. SeaBubbles, a French startup, has been trying out their electric hydrofoil water taxi with great results. Even more tests are happening over the Seine River in Paris as they prepare to launch the new taxi service.

SeaBubbles was founded by Alain Thebault, who was the designer of Hydroptere, which is a hydrofoil yacht. As the name suggests, this substance is a foil that’s able to operate on top of water. It has the benefit of lifting the hull of a boat over the water in one of its operation modes, which generates faster speeds and lower drag.
