Eve has unveiled its first full-sized eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle) cabin mock-up.
The mock-up will be showcased at Embraer’s ‘Fly the Future’ exhibition at Farnborough Airshow, together with the manufacturer’s sustainable aircraft concepts.
From July 18 to 22, visitors will be able to experience the future of regional aviation and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) at the Embraer pavilion located at E037.
Updated vehicle configuration
Eve also shared its most recent vehicle configuration as part of the present product design phase.
“This mock-up brilliantly materialises the cabin concept we have been co-creating with potential users for years. We recently received feedback from our advisory board, and now we will be able to show it to other stakeholders here at Farnborough Airshow. Our solutions were designed considering essential market needs, such as accessibility, safety, sustainability, and ticket price. It is always exciting when we achieve this stage of the programme,” said Flavia Ciaccia, Vice President of User Experience of Eve.
As part of the ongoing product development, the company presented the current vehicle design that uses a conventional wing and tail instead of the previous canard configuration.
The eight rotors are fixed around the wing, providing vertical take-off and landing capability as well as safety and reliability in a lift-plus-cruise design.
‘On the right path’
Andre Stein, Co-CEO of Eve, added: “Our teams have been working hard to create the best solutions for the global urban air mobility environment, and our aviation experience through Embraer not only gives us confidence that we are on the right path but also puts us at the forefront of the market. We’ve been accelerating our resources engagement and evolving the project’s maturity.”
