Airbus has abandoned plans to produce larger, scaled up versions of its E-Fan electric light aircraft.

In 2014, Airbus announced a joint venture with French turboprop manufacturer Daher-Socata to produce the two-seat E-Fan 2.0 and four-seat E-Fan 4.0. Airbus is now to concentrate on developing a much larger hybrid-electric, regional aircraft to enter service in 2030.
