The Uber vehicle mockup, by Safran Cabin.

Safran and Uber unveil a full-scale cabin mockup based on a vision of on-demand urban air mobility vehicle

Safran and Uber present an eVTOL cabin that will ensure a consistent passenger experience, no matter the vehicle manufacturer. Safran achieves such a concept thanks to its own expertise as the world’s #1 cabin interior provider and utilizing rapidly maturing vehicle technology.

The Mission Driven Cabin is the result of months of intensive design and passenger experience studies, hosted at Safran Cabin’s Design and Innovation Studio located in Huntington Beach, CA, as well as consultations with multiple vehicle OEMs and regulatory bodies.

Combining the mass market experience on larger passenger aircraft with the specialized expertise it also possesses from designing and building interiors for small business jets, Safran Cabin designed a complete, integrated cabin interior based on a common eVTOL specification. Designed to be adaptable to the varying envelopes of different OEM vehicle designs, the interior nonetheless will feel familiar to passengers as Uber seeks to make urban air travel simple, safe, and accessible to all. Designed around the mission of turning a typical 90-minute car ride into a 15-minute flight, the future vehicle will allow passengers to quickly travel point-to-point in crowded urban environments by going vertical.

Scott Savian, EVP of Design and Innovation Studio – Safran Cabin says: “Through the process with Uber, we had six full-scale mockups, with multiple iterations in each one, looking at the seats, liners, and window positioning. We don’t want any excess weight or cost, but the mission also requires safety, a comfortable user experience, and a seamlessness of all the user interactions. So while the cabin may be minimal in some ways, it’s absolutely purpose built to the mission.”
