EHang EH216 Completes Demo Tour of Four Japanese Cities

The world’s leading intelligent autopilot technology company – EHang Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd (Nasdaq: EH) announced that its EH216 autopilot aircraft successfully completed a four-city flight demonstration in Japan in July. It is the first time EHang has demonstrated its eVTOL aircraft in the region, following last year’s demonstrations in Okayama and Fukushima.

Founded in mainland China in 2014, EHang is a pioneer in the global urban air mobility industry. Its products are constantly being updated, including the self-developed EH216, a short-to-medium-range manned autopilot electric vehicle. In January 2022, EHang received a pre-order from AirX InC., a leading Japanese urban air transportation digital platform company, for 50 units of EH216, which are expected to provide air taxi service for the Expo 2025 Osaka Kansai.

Since 2021, EHang has constantly been adjusting its plans to transform into a UAM platform operator. From selling aircraft to offdering services, EHang hopes to promote sales through operations and create an operational template for the urban air transportation industry.
