EHang Holdings Limited revealed the official price for its innovative EH216-S passenger drone in China. EHang has set the retail price at RMB2.39 million (approximately $338,000) per unit, effective April 1, 2024. This strategic move aims to meet market needs and elevate the value of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solutions.
The EH216-S achieved a major milestone in October 2023, when it secured a Type Certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). This was followed by a Standard Airworthiness Certificate in December, paving the way for initial customer deliveries. The first commercial flight demonstrations were successfully conducted in Guangzhou and Hefei on December 28th.
These certified EH216-S drones are now poised to provide commercial services like low-altitude sightseeing and urban tourism. In addition, EHang anticipates further expansion and implementation across diverse operational scenarios.
