U.S.-based mobility service provider Supernal, which is part of Hyundai Motor Group unveiled the initial design for its new all-electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft at the ongoing Farnborough International Airshow.

Supernal is working to certify its eVTOL vehicle for commercial use in the United States starting in 2028 – and in the E.U. and U.K. shortly after.

The unveil also provided the first details on how Hyundai Motor Group, is integrating automotive capabilities to develop the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market. “In order for Advanced Air Mobility to become a wide-spread mode of transportation, every detail – from the passenger experience to regulations and infrastructure – needs to be addressed from the start and work in lockstep with one another,” said Jaiwon Shin, President of Hyundai Motor Group and CEO of Supernal.

Beyond the vehicle, Supernal is collaborating with external partners and the Hyundai Motor Group’s more than 50 affiliates – which span automobiles, automotive parts, construction, robotics and autonomous driving – to responsibly co-create the expansive AAM value chain.

“Supernal is partnering with Hyundai Motor Group’s top automotive designers to develop our eVTOL vehicle for manufacturability and wide-spread public acceptance,” Shin added.

Supernal’s five-seat cabin concept features a light-weight interior cabin, which is made of forged carbon fiber and with sustainability as a priority, the cabin concept incorporates materials such as advanced recyclable carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic, durable plant-based leather, recycled plastic fabric and responsibly sourced woods. The seat frame also makes use of excess raw material from the airframe manufacturing process.

In addition to developing Supernal’s battery-powered eVTOL vehicle designed for intra-city passenger journeys, Hyundai Motor Group’s Korea-based division which is focused on Regional Air Mobility is developing a hydrogen-powered mid-sized vehicle for regional – city-to-city – cargo and passenger journeys. It plans to launch service of its hydrogen vehicle in the 2030s.
