Chinese firm EHang wants the world to see it’s a going concern. And so it has released photos of its new facility that’s being completed in the city of Yunfu. There’s a reason why these pictures are coming now.
Chinese VTOL company EHang has seen a 60% drop in its stock price after Wolfpack Research questioned the company and its practices. EHang has now responded to the report, with its founder Huazhi Hu answering nine key questions.
EHang, a global leader in the coming market for autonomous, passenger-carrying drones, has announced membership in the Air Mobility Urban – Large Experimental Demonstration projects. This is one of the largest European demonstrations of Urban Air Mobility, and another step on the path toward drones carrying people.
Chinese firm EHang, which is becoming very well known for its EH216 passenger-carrying drone, has news. The company has received a long-term flight permit allowing it to conduct test flights in Austria’s national airspace. In fact, it’s already carried out a flight.
Mark our words: The day will come when unmanned aircraft systems routinely shuttle passengers and goods across the skylines of our cities. What’s more, EHang is likely to be one of the companies at the forefront.
Late last month, EHang announced that it would accelerate its urban air mobility operations due to China announcing the first unmanned civil aviation experimental zones (UCAEZ) to allow EHang and other companies to test out its drones.
Chinese drone company EHang has taken to the sky in South Korea in its latest test, delivering rice before it moves on to human passengers. The test took place in the South Korean capital, Seoul, as a part of its goal to get drones flying by 2025.
Late last month, drone maker EHang showed off its latest heavy-lift autonomous drone for use in short to medium-length aerial logistics. EHang’s new 216 Logistics drone is somewhat of a scaled-down version of the company’s larger passenger drone.
EHang has begun trailing passenger sightseeing flights using its 216 unmanned drone over the coastal city of Yantai in East China. The trial flights took four passengers into the skies to demonstrate the reliability and versatility of its passenger drones.
EHang is working on using its passenger drones to deliver heavy air cargo after it received the go-ahead from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). EHang will be trailing the concept until enough data is collected to understand if the drones can be used in a larger area.
For more than a half century, much of the urban experience has been built around the needs and capabilities of automobiles. Now China is experimenting with a framework built around air taxis to create the world’s first drone hotel. Expand Expanding Close
Chinese Ehang, a name you may recognize from their flying taxi, just broke the Guinness World Record record for largest drone display with a fleet of 1,374 drones at a Labour Day show in Xi’an, breaking Intel’s previous record of 1,218 drones flown during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. During the first rehearsal flight, all went well and Ehang was able to secure the record, however, during the live performance on May 1st signal interference from the audience may have caused some drones to break formation and some even fell out of the sky.

Only two years ago at CES in Las Vegas, Ehang promised to deliver an autonomous, passenger-carrying taxi-drone and in a video released by Ehang today, it shows that they have.

In the video below they even show how they send their company officials for a test flight in the Ehang 184.
