The Nexus Story

Nexus by Textron eAviation

Building the next generation of advanced air mobility comes with unprecedented technical challenges and capital investments. Textron eAviation is the most credible name in the eVTOL industry, backed by Textron's leading experience manufacturing and certifying innovative aircraft.

The Nexus is being designed to meet the world's need for sustainable aviation alternatives that can perform a variety of missions. Performing the roles of air taxi, cargo carrier, air ambulance and more, Nexus eVTOL vehicles will make carbon-neutral flights possible in the modern airspace.

Today the Nexus is on course to be the most practical solution for sustainable urban air mobility.

What is an eVTOL?

An eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicle is an aircraft powered by electric propulsion and designed for vertical takeoff and landing. It operates without traditional runways, offering potential applications in urban air mobility. eVTOLs aim to provide efficient, environmentally friendly solutions for short-distance aerial transportation.

On-demand air mobility.

Cruising at more than 120 knots, the Nexus will reduce an hour of travel time to mere minutes. It will not only faster than ground-based vehicles, but also ready to rise on demand. Welcome to the future of flight, where connections between people and places happen on the fly.

Capacity for comfort.

Imagine it: everyday transportation with the comfort of a private aircraft. Designed for one pilot and four passengers, the Nexus will provide everyone on board with spacious seating, quiet cabin technology and large wrap-around windows that maximize situational awareness.

Zero emissions.

For sustainable aviation to succeed, it must be safe, reliable and efficient. We have experience developing and certifying electric aircraft for modern skies. The Nexus will deliver on the promise of environmentally friendly flight that integrates seamlessly with the National Airspace System.

Opportunities in range.

Capable of flying 100 nautical miles, the Nexus will offer enough range to traverse the world's largest cities. Tiltrotor technology enables vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) out of urban areas and rugged environments alike. Or wherever advanced air mobility is needed.
