All-electric sea glider

Hawaiian Airlines is working with aerospace and maritime company, REGENT, to build an all-electric seaglider that holds 100 passengers.

The all-electric sea glider is a zero-emission vehicle that will soon provide harbor-to-harbor overwater transportation.  It operates at a fraction of the cost, noise, and emissions of existing regional transportation modes, like aircraft and ferries.  This will fulfill the company’s vision for convenient, comfortable, and environmentally sustainable interisland transportation.

The ingenious new vehicle is planned for entry into commercial service by 2028.  The development is bound to revolutionize how people in Hawaii travel and, more specifically, how they island hop.  Now that’s some exciting news!
