Eviation today introduced a six-passenger executive-cabin version of its Alice all-electric aircraft. The unveiling comes as the startup awaits a spell of good weather to make a first flight with its redesigned prototype as it works to get the fixed-wing model in service in 2026.
The executive cabin, which is six-foot four-inches wide, features a fully equipped galley with a lavatory and sink, wardrobe to stow jackets and other personal belongings, side panel at each seat with a foldable table, personal power outlets, and USB plugs. In addition to the executive version, the Alice will be offered with nine passenger seats for scheduled, sub-regional airline service and as a freighter with seats removed.
“Alice’s executive cabin is the epitome of pure all-electric elegance and a magnificent blend of beauty and technology,” said Eviation CEO Omer Bar-Yohay. “We are shaping the future of travel through electric aviation and it’s thrilling to offer a glimpse into what business travel can and will look like in the very near term.”
Powered by two Magni650 electric propulsion units produced by Eviation's sister company MagniX, Alice uses a fly-by-wire flight control system from Honeywell, wings and other aerostructures from GKN, and cockpit systems from BendixKing. The single-volume, high-energy-density Alice battery energy system is made from currently available battery cells and technology.
