The all-electric Rolls-Royce aircraft has the most power-intensive battery pack ever for an aircraft enough to fuel 250 homes or fly from London to Paris on a single charge.
All Electric Rolls Royce Plane
The Rolls-Royce all-electric aircraft – the spirit of innovation – will take to the skies for the first time in the coming weeks, as it works towards a world-record effort with a target speed of more than 300 mph (more than 480 kph) does. The exciting project will be carbon neutral and to support this unprecedented innovation, Jaguar Land Rover is lending all-electric zero emission Jaguar I-Pace cars as towing and support vehicles.
The aircraft has been built by the ACCEL program to accelerate the electrification of flight, which includes key partners YASA, the electric motor and controller manufacturer, and aviation startup Electroflight. Half of the project funding is provided by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), in partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Innovate UK.
Following the UK government’s social distancing and other health guidelines, the ACCEL team continues to innovate.
Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover are UK leaders focusing on advancing electrical technology for their respective regions, said Rob Watson, Director of Rolls-Royce Electrical. We are glad that Jaguar Land Rover is giving us loans in the form of I-Pace vehicles. We bid to develop the world’s fastest all-electric plane. It is important for us that the ACCEL program is carbon neutral and will support all-electric cars for ground support.
The spirit of innovation features an electric propulsion system that delivers 500hp plus, the most power-intensive ever for an aircraft, with enough energy to fuel 250 homes or fly from London to Paris on a single charge. There is a battery pack. The I-Pace uses two electric motors that produce a total of 394hp, coupled with a 90kWh lithium-ion battery and 432 pouch cells. Incidentally, the I-Pace is capable of delivering power for 292 miles (WLTP) by road from London to Paris on a single charge.
Rodden Glover, MD, Jaguar Land Rover UK said, “The I-Pace is a true pioneer. When it was launched in 2018, it was the world’s first premium all-electric SUV, establishing Jaguar as a leader in electrification and brand establishment. It is on track to become fully electric by 2025. We are delighted to support another great British pioneer, Rolls-Royce, and his team.
