Archer Unveils A Luxe Two-Person 150MPH EVOTL With A 60-Mile Range

As drones and automated flight continue evolving, it’s become increasingly clear that VTOLs (or “Vertical Take Off and Landing”) vehicles almost certainly represent the future of short to medium-distance urban travel and commuting. And one new startup is aiming to spearhead this emerging space with the reveal of the Archer Maker.

The Maker features a vertically integrated 75kWh battery shoehorned into the VTOL’s lightweight composite superstructure and that affords the 3,324lb E-VOTL a 60-mile range. Top-notch safety standards are made possible through the use of a host of redundant systems, including the vehicle’s avionics, batteries, and altitude sensors. The Maker’s fully-electric powertrain and dozen rotors provide 435 horsepower (325kW) of hover power, providing enough propulsion to comfortable ferry two passengers and their cargo short jaunts while only producing 45 decibels of sound, making it a markedly more urban-friendly alternative to traditional aircraft. The interior of the Maker boasts a 13” touchscreen display and a wraparound winding providing a panoramic 270-degree view. To learn more about this ambitious project, you can visit the Maker’s page on the Archer website linked below.
