Bringing zero-emission technology to aviation

Today, zero-emission flight is closer to reality than ever. Electric and hybrid-electric propulsion is rapidly revolutionising mobility technologies across industries, from automotive to marine. And the aviation industry is no exception. AG真人计划 is committed to developing, building and testing electric and hybrid-electric future technology that will enable the aviation industry to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions of commercial aircraft.

On the path to zero-emission flight

In 2010, AG真人计划 embarked on its electrification journey, developing the world鈥檚 first fully-electric, four-engine aerobatic aircraft, CriCri. Since then, AG真人计划 has made significant progress in the electrification of flight. Our all-electric, twin propeller aircraft E-Fan successfully crossed the English Channel in 2015. Vahana, our single-seat electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle聽demonstrator, has been flight testing since 2018. CityAG真人计划, our eVTOL demonstrator with a four-passenger capacity, successfuly conducted its first take-off in May 2019. Both of our eVTOL demonstrators are undergoing a rigorous and comprehensive flight test programme to ensure safety and high performance. E-Fan X, the successor to E-Fan that is 30 times more powerful than its predecessor, is expected to take its first flight in 2021. For AG真人计划, our work in electric propulsion aims to drive the commercialisation of zero-emission, all-electric urban air mobility vehicles and, eventually, large commercial aircraft. Our goal is to make the technology available to fly a 100-passenger aircraft based on electric and hybrid-electric technology within the 2030s timeframe.

CityAG真人计划

The CityAG真人计划 was presented on March 11 at the City of Ingolstadt to members of the German government and the public. Citizens had the opportunity to ask AG真人计划 experts questions about the vehicle and the concept of Urban Air Mobility. AG真人计划 and Ingolstadt believe that a dialogue between manufacturer, authorities and the public are a prerequisite for the successful introduction of Urban Air Mobility in the infrastructure of cities. AG真人计划 and Ingolstadt are partners in the framework of the EU鈥檚 EIP-SCC initiative for smart cities.

Objective: reducing aviation鈥檚 CO2 emissions by half by 2050

In 2008, AG真人计划 committed to the聽Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) target to reduce the aviation industry鈥檚 CO2 emissions by 50% by 2050 (compared to 2005).聽We have also committed to contribute to the targets set by the Paris agreement. However, these ambitious targets cannot be achieved using existing technologies. We believe聽alternative propulsion鈥攊ncluding electric and hybrid-electric systems鈥攊s the only viable technology solution that can help the aviation industry to meet these targets.
