EHang Receives Pre-Order for 50 Units of EH216

EHang announced that AirX, a Japanese air mobility digital platform company, has placed a pre-order for 50 units of the EH216 AAV. This marks the biggest pre-order EHang has received in Japan.

The pre-orders are planned to help with various urban air mobility (UAM) projects in Japan. They may also provide air taxi services for the 2025 World Expo in Osaka.

Tezuka Kiwamu, Founder and CEO of AirX, said “The low-altitude transportation and tourism market has great potential and broad prospects. By leveraging the advantages of autonomous flight technologies and centralized management, the EH216 AAVs can provide customers with cost-effective aerial sightseeing services, which is why AirX selects EHang as a partner in the global eVTOL market. We look forward to offering consumers safer and more convenient travel options with the EH216 in the future.”

Huazhi Hu, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of EHang, is optimistic, saying “Our partnership with AirX marks a key milestone for us to further explore and develop the UAM market in Japan. We are very delighted to see an increasing number of air transportation partners are introducing EHang’s safe, autonomous and sustainable urban air mobility solutions to the general public.”
