After officially introducing their flying taxi called EHang 216 in the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) Hybrid 2021. EHang finally arrived in Jakarta in April 2021 and is expected to be tested in October 2021 before finally being operated in the near future.
“We plan to conduct a trial at the Head of the Indonesian Consultative Assembly (MPR), Bambang Soesatyo’s place in Bali, while we’re still working on all the paperwork in order to make everything legal to operate in Indonesia.” Salim said on Wednesday (1/9). Salim also said that he has a specific reason behind his decision to test his EHang in Bali. “By introducing this product in Bali, we really hope that this will help the tourism sector on the island when EHang can finally operate and contribute by being a unique tourist attraction in Bali.” Salim added.
Salim is also optimistic that the EHang 216 will be a cheaper and more environmentally friendly tourist attraction which will bring a positive impact to Bali’s economy. Aside from the Head of the Indonesian MPR, Salim also plans to invite the Indonesian Tourism Minister, Sandiaga Uno in the event to conduct a trial for the EHang 216 in Bali. “We will also invite our Tourism Minister to this event as he has been pretty concerned about sustainable energy usage, so he might also be interested in this flying electric taxi.” Salim concluded.
