The leading global urban air mobility (UAM) manufacturer, EHang, has completed four successful demonstration flights across four cities in Japan.
The demonstrations were intended to underline the Chinese manufacturer’s presence in and commitment to Japan as a significant market for its autonomous craft and to continue priming the public for Expo 2025 Osaka. The event will focus on sustainable, smart city technologies, providing a ground for EHang to showcase its air taxi, the EH216.
In preparation for that, EHang staged a series of flights in and around four Japanese cities – expanding its operational footprint in the country. The demonstrations aimed to showcase the aircraft’s performance in various missions, including smart logistics, over-sea sightseeing, and point-to-point transportation.
“We are very pleased to complete the EH216 demo flight tour.. which has set our footprint in up to six cities across Japan, and laid a solid foundation for our continuous expansion in the Japanese market,” said EHang CEO Hu Huazhi. “With EHang’s first mover advantages and leading expertise in AAV technologies, we expect to have the opportunity to provide EH216 flights for the Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, and implement EHang’s safe, autonomous and eco-friendly UAM solutions in Japan in the near future.”
