The fully electric CityAirbus NextGen is equipped with fixed wings, a V-shaped tail, and eight electrically powered propellers as part of its distributed propulsion system. It is designed to carry up to four passengers in a zero emissions flight in multiple applications. CityAirbus is being developed to fly with an 80-km-range and to reach a cruise speed of 120 km/h, making it perfectly suited for operations in major cities for a variety of missions. Urban Air Mobility with electric vehicles is part of Airbus’s roadmap towards zero emission air travel.
