EHang is developing a new 2-seater drone taxi for inter-city travel

EHang, a pioneer in passenger-grade drones and urban air mobility solutions, has unveiled a new drone taxi, VT-30, geared toward inter-city transportation.

With a flight time of up to 100 minutes, the drone taxi is designed to carry up to two passengers. We are also being told that the long-range flagship product can cover a distance of more than 186 miles (300 km) on a single charge.

EHang says the VT-30 is fully aligned with the company’s principles of green travel, offering the benefits of eco-friendliness, zero emissions, and low noise. The drone taxi’s focus will be on travel among city clusters, such as the Greater Bay Area of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao in South China.

In terms of product development, EHang has already tested VT-30’s vertical take-off and landing and power systems. Now, other tests and optimizations under different environmental conditions are being conducted to improve the product’s safety and stability.
