Rolls-Royce New Electric Plane
Rolls-Royce has unveiled an electric plane prototype named ACCEL that it has big plans for this spring. ACCEL has been going through testing and in the spring of 2020 Rolls-Royce will begin attempts to break the world speed record for electric aircraft. The ACCEL (accelerate the electrification of flight) is capable of more than 300 miles per hour, according to Rolls-Royce. The current record set by electric aircraft is 210 miles per hour. With this prototype, the company's goal is to advance e-plane technology and set new records for performance and speed.
Flying with Zero Emissions and the Densest Battery Pack
ACCEL has the densest battery pack ever used in an electric aircraft. It's able to travel 200 miles per charge. There are three electric engines. They produce a constant 500 horsepower. Most importantly, the e-plane is quiet and has zero emissions. It's the future of flying with no carbon footprint in Rolls-Royce style.
Pushing the Boundaries of E-Flying
Rolls-Royce is backed on this initiative by British government funding as it pushes the boundaries of electric flying. The company wants to be at the forefront of electric flying and the ACCEL is expected to accelerate the journey of flying into a carbon footprint free sky.
