CES 2024: Urban Air Mobility Gets Closer to Reality with Supernal’s New eVTOL Concept

 

Is urban air mobility finally ready to take flight? The eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing) movement has, of yet, landed as fast as some predicted, but news out of CES 2024 makes it clear that it’s coming.

Supernal, Hyundai Motor Group’s air taxi division, unveiled its second eVTOL concept at CES 2024, showcasing a vehicle designed for quiet urban air mobility with a 25- to 40-mile range, set to begin test flights in December 2024 as the company moves towards FAA certification. If everything stays on track, Supernal expects these vehicles to reach the market in 2028.

How does Supernal plan to transform the daily commute into a seamless, sustainable journey integrating air and ground travel?

John Illson, the Chief Safety Officer for Supernal, guides viewers through the innovative features of the new eVTOL concept vehicle, SA-2, emphasizing its potential to revolutionize urban transit with safety and efficiency at its core.

“Safety is not negotiable for us, so this aircraft will be certified to the highest safety standards set by the FAA or other regulators,” Illson assured, highlighting Supernal’s commitment to setting a new benchmark in air mobility.
