Aero-mage.com announces that Rolls-Royce has unveiled a major step forward in all-electric flight.
This move signals Rolls-Royce’s intention to build the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft. They aim to make a run for the record books with the zero emission plane clocking over 300mph in the late spring 2020.
One of the limiting factors of electric flight thus far has been the speed (or rather the lack of it).
A Rolls-Royce initiative called ACCEL – ‘Accelerating the Electrification of Flight’ is part of their strategy to champion the electrification of transport.
ACCEL will have the most power-dense battery pack ever assembled for an aircraft, enabling a range of 200 miles on a single charge.
