Rolls-Royce is leading a highly specialised challenge to build the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft
This zero-emissions plane is expected to make a run for the record books with a target speed of 300+ MPH (480+ KMH).
Rolls-Royce has rolled out to the public for the first time its Accel aeroplane which it hopes will earn the blue-chip engineer a place in history by smashing the current speed record for an electrically-powered aircraft. The battery-powered Accel is targeting a top speed in excess of 300mph over four 3,000-metre runs during a single flight when goes for the record off the Welsh coast in the summer.
