AAV platform EHang has provided an update on the development of its new production facility in Yunfu city, China. The retrofitting process of the existing building is being completed and production of EHang AAVs is expected to start in the second quarter of 2021.

The Yunfu facility has a planned gross floor area of 24,000 sqm. It will be the home to EHang's newest aerial vehicle assembly lines, a computer numerical control (CNC) processing centre, a painting workshop and a carbon fibre composite materials processing area. In addition, the Yunfu facility will include a research and training centre and an outdoor flight test vertiport.

Upon completion, the facility will play a major role in producing EHang's flagship products, the EH216 series of passenger-grade AAVs, with a planned initial annual capacity of 600 units, which can be further increased to support the growing global market needs. EHang expects that it will be the first AAV commercial production facility of this scale.

EHang plans to host an investor day event for a facility tour at Yunfu in late June 2021. The existing production facility at EHang's headquarters in Guangzhou spans a total area of 8,750 sqm and houses production processes for its AAV products. After the Yunfu facility is up and running, the major role of the facility in Guangzhou will be gradually migrated to focus on supporting the company's expanding new products R&D efforts.
