Naspers-owned Tencent has invested in Lilium, a German aviation firm developing an electric flying taxi that takes off and lands vertically, but flies horizontally.
Lilium aims to have a product that can fly for an hour at speeds up to 300 km/h on a single charge.
Naspers owns 34% of Tencent, Asia’s second largest company.
In March Tencent bought 5% of Elon Musk’s Tesla.
