Hyundai has introduced the promising cabin design of the eVTOL aircraft at the 2022 Farnborough International Air Show.
Supernal, the aeronautical equipment company of Hyundai Motor Group, has introduced the cabin design of the eVTOL aircraft, an all-electric flying vehicle used to carry passengers around the city. This model is expected to make commercial flights in the US in 2028.

The eVTOL prototype interior was unveiled at the 2022 Farnborough International Air Show and the aircraft is expected to be commercialized in six years. The 5-seater cabin was designed by Hyundai engineers, inspired by the philosophy of biomimicry and, more specifically, by butterflies.

The design looks like the cockpit of a helicopter, comes with aerodynamic shapes, two butterfly doors on the sides and windows. However, this is just a simulated cabin design. So the actual exterior design has not been completed and only serves the purpose of introducing the exhibition.

Inside the eVTOL, the five seats are arranged in a 1+2+2 configuration, with the pilot's seat featuring integrated joysticks. The passenger seat has a comfortable backrest cushion, seat belt and smartphone holder on the back of the seat.

In addition, it also acts as an extremely handy clothes hanger for passengers. The control panels can be installed in between the seats with 1 console and touch screen. Meanwhile, behind the pilot's seat will be mounted a larger screen. Finally, another highlight of this design is the structurally illuminated cabin roof.

In general, one of the most important factors in the development of the project is that Hyundai always takes people as the center to approach. The manufacturer has been flexible in using lightweight and durable materials, plus the same safety and comfort as conventional cars.

The structure of the plane is made of carbon steel fiber and the seat frame is made of raw materials left over from the manufacturing process. Other materials used include advanced recyclable carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics, plant-based leather, recycled plastic cloth and wood.

Hyundai Motor Group is working with more than 50 affiliated companies in the automotive, auto parts, construction, robotics and autonomous driving sectors. This chain of links aims to establish a supply system for the development and production of future commercial aircraft models.

Shortly after the launch of Supernal eVTOL, Rolls-Royce and Hyundai Motor Group signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of bringing hydrogen fuel cell technology and all-electric propulsion into the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Market. The first aircraft to use fuel cell technology will be launched in 2025.

Hyundai wants to get enough certifications for the Supernal eVTOL to be used commercially starting in 2028 in the US and later in Europe and the UK. Besides battery-powered aircraft for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market, the company is also working on a hydrogen-powered mid-size aircraft for Regional Air Mobility (RAM) that will be able to transport cargo and passengers. between cities starting in the 2030s in Korea.

Hyundai did not mention the expected price of this new model of its aircraft. However, they say the scale of the manufacturing process will also drive down prices to make it affordable for customers in the decades to come.

Flying devices transporting passengers, flying taxis, running on electricity are a potential market with the participation of technology giants. However, the game has only just begun, the products have not yet contributed much to daily life. Therefore, we have the right to expect more convenient product models to be released in the near future.
