Chinese startup Xpeng Aeroht plans to produce electric passenger drones in Q4 2025, with the final assembly of flying cars. The timeline is part of a framework agreement signed between Xpeng and Aeroht, with Aeroht paying RMB 71,000 ($9,940) for each aircraft when production volume is below 25,000.

Aeroht’s controlling shareholder, He Xiaopeng, unveiled an electric flying vehicle prototype in October. Aerofugia, a subsidiary of Geely, plans to secure an airworthiness certificate from Chinese regulators by 2025 to deliver its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOLs) air taxis to shareholder Sino Jet, a Chinese business jet operator.
