"This flying cargo air vehicle represents another major step in our Boeing eVTOL strategy", said Boeing chief technology officer Greg Hyslop in a statement.
Ultimately, Boeing wants to use the autonomous drone for large-scale cargo delivery.
Boeing told our sister publication Air Cargo World, that the end goal was "market-driven solutions that will someday offer customers the ability to carry hundreds of pounds over broad distances in a way that makes it useful and relevant to them".
Also, while we write about electric vehicles every day and increasingly have written about VTOL aircraft, it was interesting to see that Boeing chose to abbreviate "electric vertical-takeoff-and-landing" as "eVTOL".
