In just the last four months alone, EHang has captivated three world leaders with its 216 AAV technology: President Macron, Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang and yesterday, King Felipe VI of Spain.

The 216 is being displayed at the World ATM Congress in Madrid at the Canary Islands Government booth under the colours of the Spanish National Police. An agreement’s been made for the craft to be trialed by the police to assist in its work.
Who should attend the first Congress day, but the King of Spain, Felipe VI. Social media claims, he was keen to view the EHang craft and spent a fair amount of time looking around it and asking delegates questions.
This growing list of interested world leaders can only help EHang’s cause. The publicity alone boosts the company’s standing and widens public awareness.
