Rolls-Royce’s All Electric Aircraft Claims World Speed Record

by Sumit Singh    November 19, 2021


Rolls-Royce today shared that its all-electric plane has set three new
world records. One of these achievements is that on November 16th, the
Spirit of Innovation aircraft reached a top speed of 555.9 km/h (345.4
mph) over 3 km, surpassing the current record by 213.04 km/h (132 mph)
to affirm itself as the world’s fastest all-electric vehicle.

Its design reminds me of the WWII Spitfire fighter.
