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