Airbus also showed a teaser video of the new CityAirbus at its 2021 Airbus Summit, showing the design of this concept in the current render. Airbus believes the future lies in the emerging Urban Air Mobility (UAM), which will see us fly everywhere with cars and taxis. Perhaps this is why the company is constantly focusing on making new experiments in this direction. The new next generation CityAirbus is also an example of this.
Developed by Airbus Helicopters, the new CityAirbus is an autonomous electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) multi-passenger vehicle designed for cities and suburbs. The design has been kept different from the previous CityAirbus. The new flying vehicle now has a fixed wing instead of eight electrically powered propellers and a V-shaped tail at the rear. The design is reminiscent of an airplane from a science fiction movie.
Airbus claims that the new electric plane will make little noise during flight and landing. Speaking of technical numbers, the noise level will be 65-70dB(A). For example, let’s say it’s similar to the noise coming from your vacuum cleaner. It is claimed that the new CityAirbus can fly 80 km and will have a top speed of 120 km per hour.
