Have you heard the buzz about the pilotless flying taxi called the EH216-S?

Imagine – if you can – hopping into a taxi and instead of driving on the road, it takes off into the sky.

That’s exactly what this flying taxi does.

We know it sounds a bit unrealistic, but this is actually happening.

The company behind this cool invention is called EHang, and they’re all about making air travel more accessible and eco-friendly.

It’s companies like EHang and Xpeng and their flying cars that are revolutionizing the way we travel.

Coming back to the EH216-S, it recently took its maiden voyage with a passenger onboard in Abu Dhabi.

It’s the very first time that a pilotless flying taxi has carried a passenger, making it a massive achievement.

But it’s not the first time EHang has done something impressive.

Besides the EH216-S flying with a passenger, there are other versions of this flying wonder, like the EH216-F used for firefighting and the EH216-L for aerial logistics.

They all took to the skies, showcasing the different ways these pilotless flying taxis can be used.

Now, you might be wondering why these flying taxis are made in the first place. And most importantly, are they safe to travel?

Vehicles like the EH216-S are built to tackle challenges like traffic congestion and pollution. And with high redundancy design and intelligent cluster management, safety is not in doubt.

Talking about the passenger who took the ride on the EH216-S, it was none other than Mr. Mohamed Al Dhaheri, a board member of Multi Level Group.

He said it was a historic moment, and he’s right. Flying taxis like these could change the way we travel in the future.
