Rolls-Royce is the fastest electric plane in the world

Rolls-Royce said its electric plane has a top speed of 623 kilometers per hour, making the plane the fastest all-electric car in the world, according to the company.

The company said in a statement that the Spirit of Innovation is the world's fastest all-electric aircraft. Therefore, he submitted three world record applications to the World Air Sports Federation.

The complaint includes:

  •     The plane flies more than 3 kilometers at a speed of 555.9 kilometers per hour.
  •     In a flight of more than 15 kilometers, the aircraft reached a speed of 532.1 kilometers per hour.
  •     The plane climbed to an altitude of 3000 meters in 202 seconds.

During the standard operation, the maximum speed of the aircraft reached 623 kilometers per hour. So the company assumes that this number will make the spirit of innovation the fastest all-electric car in the world.

The spirit of innovation is the result of a project called ACCEL, or Accelerated Aviation Electrification. Program partners include engine and control unit experts YASA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mercedes. In addition to Electroflight, Rolls-Royce has named it a startup airline.

50% of the funding comes from a collaboration between the Institute of Space Technology, the UK Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and the UK Department of Innovation.

According to the company, the aircraft uses a 400-kilowatt electric motor and the most energy-consuming traction battery installed on the site.

In addition, the aircraft completed its maiden flight in September. It flew over the UK for 15 minutes.

With growing concerns about sustainability and the environment, discussions in the aviation field have increasingly focused on how to reduce environmental impact through innovation and ideas.

Rolls-Royce has a long history in aviation

The World Wide Fund for Nature describes air travel as the most carbon-intensive activity that humans can undertake.

In recent years, some companies have attempted to develop plans and concepts for low-emission and zero-emissions aviation.

In September last year, a hydrogen fuel cell aircraft capable of carrying passengers flew over England for the first time.

In the same month, Airbus also released detailed information on three hydrogen-powered aircraft. The company says it can start operating in 2035.
