Ascendance revises the design for its long-range hybrid eVTOL

• New Atlas

France's Ascendance has released an updated design and range figure for its long-range, fan-in-wing, eVTOL air taxi. The Atea will use batteries and kerosene for energy storage, but its modular hybrid system will eventually support hydrogen as well.

When we first encountered this company back in February, Ascendance was proposing something much more like a regular airplane, with just three weird inside-out fans handling VTOL duties. Now, the company has put a much more robust looking design on the table.
