How Eve is Making Flying Cars a Reality

According to a recent Reuters report, aircraft maker Eve — managed by Brazil’s Embraer — has signed letters of intent for the sales of its “flying car” to Nordic Aviation, Voar Aviation, and Wideroe Zero. These Eve flying cars were announced during the Paris Airshow recently.

What is the Deal?

The deals announced during the Paris Airshow include three companies that would be acquiring these flying cars. There is a possible acquisition of 50 aircraft by Wideroe, 30 by Lessor Nordic, and 70 eVTOLs (electric vertical take-offs and landing vehicles).

Nordic shall obtain 15 firm orders along with 15 optional eVTOLs. The company said that these would be leased to fleet operators. Wideroe is planning to launch the ‘flying cars’ operations in Scandinavia.

Production of Eve flying cars

Eve has completed wind tunnel testing recently for the futuristic automobile. It has a backlog of about 2800 orders before initiating production.  The company is expected to jump into commercial operations in 2026.

Operation

As told by Eve, the new agreements state that Voar shall operate its eVTOLs in popular tourist destinations and main metropolitan areas in Brazil such as Florianopolis, Sao Paulo, and Salvador.

Wideroe is already a client of Embraer for conventional jets. The company has three E190-E2 aircraft in its fleet. Norway has a goal of attaining carbon-neutral aviation by 2040. The low-carbon unit of Wideroe is the perfect fit to achieve that goal by ensuring all domestic short-haul flights are electric.
