Zoom on our board members: Jean-Christophe Kugler
Jean-Christophe Kugler was instrumental in the energy transition at Renault Group as former Europe Region Chairman.
Jean-Christophe is convinced that hybridisation will play a decisive role in the decarbonisation of aviation just as it did in the automotive sector. 🚘
Jean-Christophe joins Ascendance Flight Technologies’ board and brings his first-hand experience in Renault’s hybrid and electric programs. 🔋⚡️🍃
Jean-Christophe believes in the company’s vision and our differentiating hybrid-electric approach and says: “Their VTOL aircraft will be able to carry out all kind of long range missions. It reminds me of the impact Toyota Motor Corporation made with the #Prius 20 years ago in the automotive sector”
