I am continuously on the lookout for new and potentially game-changing technology. Electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles are one of the most fascinating innovations of recent years because they transform how we move around cities completely.
Many eVTOL firms are out there trying to get a piece of this new industry, but EHang stands out due to its innovative approach, sleek design, and impressive performance. The EHang VT-30 is a "lift and cruise" aircraft designed for intercity travel, and EHang is one of China's most prominent eVTOL manufacturers.
The EHang VT-30 can go up to 300 kilometers (with flight periods of up to 100 minutes) on a single battery charge and comfortably seats two passengers. It's flexible and adaptive because it can use either a runway or a helipad for take-off and landing. Compared to other significant competitors in the industry working on air taxis, EHang's two-seater is unusually compact and sleek (partly because of its smaller cockpit) and has an unusually higher range.
