The EHang 216 is a so-called autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) or (electric Vertical-Take-Off-Landing) that flies itself and/or can be remotely piloted. You could argue that it still qualifies as a drone, although maybe AirTaxi is a better name. Either way, this new and rapidly developing form of transportation shares many similarities with the drones we know and fly, and offers a very exciting new form of personal air travel.
