How can hybridisation improve the environmental performance of helicopters?

What is Airbus’ global electrification strategy for propulsion and non-propulsion applications? What is Airbus’ strategy for Urban Air Mobility? Find out during the “The Future is Electric” moment.


eVTOL & electrification strategy at Airbus

Since 2010, Airbus has been pursuing its electrification journey, making significant progress on propulsion technologies and launching groundbreaking demonstrator projects.

At the Airbus Summit, all eyes will be on CityAirbus, our flagship urban air mobility demonstrator. This all-electric four-seat multicopter VTOL has made some major progress in recent months, including a demo that confirmed the highest take-off weight – at 2,310 kg – of a fully electric VTOL aircraft with a distributed drive system. During the event, updates on Airbus’ company-wide electrification roadmap, including a focus on Urban Air Mobility and helicopter hybridisation, were shared.
