This development signals a new step in the company's efforts to seek official endorsement of its 5-seat E20 as an airworthy model.
According to TCab Tech, the first flight signals the completion of a series of steps for E20, now still a prototype, namely, from design to development, to manufacturing and eventually actual operation.
A group of engineers deployed to an airport in neighboring Zhejiang have overseen more than 320 flights of this airframe, which weighs in at more than 2 tons.
Following the newly forged partnership, TCab Tech has brought the total of intentional advance orders for E20 to 200.
According to the company's website, E20 is well positioned to complement existing intra- and inter-city mobility solutions, by helping commuters avoid congestion during rush hours.
