The Embraer E2 series of Brazil is set to claim its share of the narrow-body passenger airliner market when it enters service before the end of the decade,

Scheduled introduction of the Brazilian Embraer "E-Jet" E2 series family of narrow-body passenger airliners is during 2018 with carriers set for service in Brazil itself, the United States, India, and China through some 325 firm orders as of this writing. The E2 family follows the earlier E-Jet entry for the company and will be sold in three distinct marks featuring varying overall lengths, wing units, and internal arrangements to dictate seating numbers. The aircraft line will sport the latest in avionics (Honeywell Primus "Epic 2") and Fly-By-Wire (FBW) controlling with better efficiency through its Pratt & Whitney PW1000G gear turbofan pairing.

The E2 series was officially launched by Embraer at the 50th Paris Air Show. It is intended that the product compete directly against the Bombardier CSeries of jets in the same field globally - whose planned introduction is scheduled for sometime in mid-2016. Both feature similar external arrangements and carry two underslung engine nacelles. As it stands, the E2 family includes the E175-E2 with seating for approximately eighty-to-ninety passengers while the E190-E2 will seat up to 114 passengers and the E195-E2 will follow with seating for 144.

March 2016 - A flyable prototype was readied for ground testing and was showcased at Embraer's Sao Jose dos Campos location.

May 2016 -It was announced that the E2 jet had completed a first-flight (May 23rd, 2016), some months ahead of the planned first-flight date.

March 2017 - The E195-E2 model completed its first-flight. This version carries the PW1919G turbofan engine.
