Bombardier’s Challenger 3500 business jet has been named the Grand Winner in the Industrial Design/Automotive & Transportation category of the 15th edition of the Grands Prix du Design international awards contest, which recognizes excellence in design. This is the aircraft’s second award for the Challenger 3500’s cabin design following a nod in the 2022 Red Dot Product Design category.
The super-midsize Challenger 3500 was launched last year and features a redesigned cabin interior with Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat and voice-controlled lighting, temperature, and entertainment systems. It will also have wireless chargers throughout the cabin and a 24-inch 4K display. On the flight deck, the twinjet will come standard-equipped with an autothrottle system.
According to Bombardier, the Challenger 3500 is the first business jet in the super-midsize segment to have an environmental product declaration that discloses environmental information about a product’s life cycle, such as CO2 emissions, noise, water consumption, and other key environmental impact indicators.
“I am delighted that the new Challenger 3500 has once again been recognized for its innovative and exceptional cabin design,” said Bombardier president and CEO Éric Martel. “Our talented team at Bombardier designed and crafted the industry-leading Challenger 3500 for our discerning customers, offering them what they look for most in a business jet—an unprecedented cabin experience.”
