CES 2024: Supernal Unveils S-A2 eVTOL

Hyundai Motor Group’s Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) company, Supernal has unveiled its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicle product concept at CES 2024.

S-A2 has been designed to accommodate a pilot and four passengers while travelling 120 miles per hour at 1,500 feet above ground.

This V-tail aircraft will meet typical urban operational needs, providing 25- to 40-mile trips. With a battery-electric drive, it aims to offer more sustainable and efficient transport services while helping to reduce road congestion.

At entry into service, Supernal states that its vehicle will operate as quietly as a dishwasher: 65 dB in vertical take-off and landing phases and 45 dB while cruising.

This vehicle is anticipated to enter the market in 2028. By leveraging Hyundai’s mass production capabilities, Supernal hopes to break down barriers to becoming operational, producing a high-quality product in a cost-effective manner.

Jaiwon Shin, president of Hyundai Motor Group and CEO of Supernal said:

“From the beginning, Supernal has been on a mission to create the right product and the right market at the right time. The unveiling of S-A2 demonstrates our unwavering commitment to deliver on that mission with a safe, efficient vehicle design that provides a clear path to market entry. By leveraging our talented 600-person team, the vast technical and business capabilities of Hyundai Motor Group and trusted aviation suppliers around the world, Supernal is ready to deliver a new era of flight.”
