  British Company Launching Dual Electric Plane Efforts                                             Source:  Rolls Royce Rolls Royce Seeks Leadership Role in Urban Air Mobility UK-based aerospace and aviation engine company Rolls Royce is launching major initiatives to move forward and dominate the global electric aviation industry.  The company says by 2025 it expects to deploy an electric plane capable of flying 6 to 8 passengers as much as 80 nautical miles.  The e-plane will be the first commercial application for its P-Volt.  That's a battery electric system with 600 kilowatt hours of power that can be used in regional commuter e-planes or eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff & landing) vehicles. Rolls Royce believes that in the next 3 to 5 years, urban air mobility and regional air mobility with electric vehicles will begin to flourish. It also believes that with battery technology innovations, the range of e-planes will rapidly expand. World Electric Speed Record Rolls Royce
