EHang: The Latest News Updates

Ehang in 2023 is almost absent of “offi­cial” news sto­ries on its web­site. Just one to date which appeared on Feb­ru­ary 17th enti­tled ‘EH216 AAV Com­pletes Its Japan’s First Pas­sen­ger-Car­ry­ing Demo Flight’. EHang was a com­pa­ny that reg­u­lar­ly put out press releas­es in pre­vi­ous years. So why has it stopped?

Is the com­pa­ny still smart­ing from the vicious pub­lished attacks made by Wolf­pack Research who ham­mered EHang with a full-blown case of damn­ing finan­cial GBH back in Feb­ru­ary 2021 with the charm­ing head­line “A Stock Des­tined to Crash and Burn!”

Sure­ly not?

So, as some­one who is inter­est­ed in fol­low­ing the com­pa­ny or more like­ly a stock mar­ket investor who has bought EHang shares, how do you find out the lat­est news?

One way is to trawl social media, but this can take time and can be quite tedious. A piece of gen­tle advice: Try this Twit­ter Account:


While East West Con­nect only has 251 fol­low­ers, it is chock-a-block with news to please the EHang investor. There is also a web­site and a YouTube chan­nel attached (well worth a look). There is plen­ty of oth­er news too about elec­tric cars and tech­nol­o­gy-relat­ed infor­ma­tion from Chi­na.

To illus­trate this: Back in Feb­ru­ary it was report­ed that EHang had signed a strate­gic part­ner­ship with Xi’An Aero­space Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy Devel­op­ment Hold­ings Group. On the day of the sign­ing cer­e­mo­ny, two of EHang’s UAVs, the 216 and 216F were on dis­play. NB: the word ‘strate­gic’ is becom­ing increas­ing­ly used in press releas­es, per­haps, offer­ing ‘part­ner­ship’ or ‘col­lab­o­ra­tion’ more of an ele­vat­ed impor­tance? Unfor­tu­nate­ly, this news is short, sharp and sweet. No oth­er details to hand it seems.

Dur­ing March, there are five sto­ries so far. Here are a few exam­ples. On the 14th, EHang was vis­it­ed by an invest­ment pro­mo­tion team from a pre­fec­ture-lev­el city of Jing­men, locat­ed in cen­tral Hubei province. Please click on the link below.

Anoth­er, three days lat­er, announced that Xiyu Tourism (West­ern Tourism) intends to sign a “Coop­er­a­tion Frame­work Agree­ment” with EHang, to joint­ly fund and estab­lish a joint ven­ture com­pa­ny for the oper­a­tion of autonomous air­craft referred to as Xiyu Gen­er­al Avi­a­tion. Below is the link for that sto­ry.

But you need to be care­ful. Ques­tion each sto­ry. Be aware of poten­tial fake news.

To tease you, here is a link that appeared two days ago (19th) about EHang. It is quite a sto­ry if true (bot­tom left).


What do you reck­on — is this true or false? Per­haps, China’s equiv­a­lent of the West­ern April Fool? Although in 2016, the UK media alleged the Chi­nese Com­mu­nist Par­ty (CCP) had warned its cit­i­zens to ignore April Fool as “it does not fit with coun­try val­ues” and referred to “such pranks” stat­ing “It does not con­form to Chi­nese cul­tur­al tra­di­tions or social­ist core morals.”

So, that’s out, unless the per­pe­tra­tor wish­es to be sent to an intern­ment camp, offi­cial­ly called ‘voca­tion­al edu­ca­tion and train­ing cen­tres” to be re-edu­cat­ed on core Chi­nese val­ues! So, yes, the sto­ry could well be true.
