EHang receives payment for 30 EH-216 eVTOLs from Wencheng County Transportation Development Group

EHang has announced it has received full payment for the initial batch of 30 units of EH216-S passenger-carrying pilotless aircraft and has delivered 27 units to Wencheng County Transportation Development Group Co., Ltd. in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province.

“On June 22, the EH216-S pilotless electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft completed its passenger-carrying debut flight in Wencheng, marking the launch of the cultural tourism initiative of “Low-Altitude Tourism in Wencheng”. During the flight event, EH216-S carried multiple passengers for a low-altitude sightseeing tour over the renowned Tianding Lake at the Baizhangji Fall & Feiyun Lake Scenic Resort, a location offering breathtaking views of Wencheng’s natural beauty. A dedicated takeoff and landing site and supporting amenities for the EH216-S has been basically established at the Scenic Resort. The UAM operation center and supporting infrastructure will be gradually established in other areas in Wencheng as preparation for launching EH216-S aerial sightseeing services and a benchmark for low-altitude cultural tourism.”

According to the cooperation agreement between EHang and the Wencheng County Government, both parties will jointly develop UAM and supporting public service ecosystem for the low-altitude economy and explore various low-altitude commercial operations for tourism, transportation, logistics, emergency response, and other scenarios, thereby generating a combined effect in low-altitude economy. Wencheng County plans to set up aerial sightseeing routes in scenic attractions such as Tianding Lake and Baizhangji Fall within this year and to launch pilotless eVTOL aerial sightseeing services.

According to Zhaozheng Luo, Secretary of Wencheng County Government, Wencheng aims to become a demonstration county for high-quality low-altitude economy development, contributing to Wenzhou’s goal of reaching the GDP of over RMB1 trillion and a resident population of over RMB10 million, and Zhejiang’s vision of becoming a pioneering civil aviation province.
