During the third edition of the Uber Elevate Summit 2019, the company exhibited the vehicle, Which will have capacity for four people and that has eVTOL technology, which allows an electric vertical take-off and landing.

Shared air transport is one of the many mobility options that Uber intends to include in its platform. The company had already given its plans lights with the launch of a reference model for the design of this type of vehicle
To reach this prototype, Uber Elevate began a collaboration with ZEO of Safran Cabin to achieve something similar in the interior design of the cabin. "Starting with the customer experience, the design was largely thought out inside, but at the same time expandable to different fuselage profiles and designed to make it possible for certification later. Physically achieving this design in the interactive model of the cabin, in conjunction with the photorealistic experience of virtual reality, has been extremely encouraging, "said Badalamenti.
