In preparation for its plans to bring its eVTOL aircraft to market in 2026, Eve Air Mobility has chosen Porsche Consulting Inc. to help establish its supply chain, global manufacturing and logistics strategy.

Backed by Embraer, Eve intends to combine its aeronautics expertise with Porsche’s automotive experience to study industrial operation, logistics, supply chain and parts distribution. Eve said the study is intended to address scalability and distributed production as the urban air mobility (UAM) market continues to evolve.

“We are pleased to work with a leader in the industry that can support us with strategic decision-making,” said Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve, in a press release. “The UAM ecosystem is quickly evolving, and we can only achieve our goal if we spark enthusiasm for new ideas in manufacturing and supply chain areas.”

Porsche Consulting was founded in 1994 in response to the restructuring of the Porsche sports car maker. The company decided to offer its expertise in the automotive industry to other companies from various sectors, including aviation.

“We share the same values, and with industry-leading know-how, we will be able to question and challenge all existing concepts for logistics and manufacturing,” said Rudy Leutz, CEO of Porsche Consulting, about the partnership with Eve. “We will redesign the industrialization concept for that new aircraft based on the highest levels of efficiency, quality, safety and customer centricity.”

Eve is developing a five-seat eVTOL aircraft with a targeted range of up to 60 miles (96 kilometers), and cruising speeds of up to 125 miles per hour (201 kilometers per hour). The company is aiming to get its eVTOL type certified with the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC) by the end of 2025.

Last month, Eve became a publicly traded company after merging with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Zanite Acquisition Corp. Its common stocks and warrants are trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker EVEX and EVEXW.
