CityAirbus NextGen electric aircraft prototype debuts – Charged EVs


Airbus has publicly unveiled its electric CityAirbus NextGen prototype in conjunction with the opening of its new center in Donauwörth, Germany. The center is dedicated to testing eVTOL systems including flight controls, avionics, and electric motors with eight rotors.

The two-tonne-class CityAirbus is slated for its maiden flight later this year. It has a wing span of approximately 12 meters. It is being developed with an 80 km range and a cruise speed of 120 km/h for operation in urban areas.

Airbus is also workingwith Dublin-based aviation company LCI to develop partnerships and business models in the areas of strategy, commercialization and financing.

“Rolling out CityAirbus NextGen for the first time is an important and real step that we are taking towards advanced air mobility and our future product and market,” said Balkiz Sarihan, Head of Urban Air Mobility at Airbus.
