Rolls-Royce Spirit of Innovation Electric Airplane Fastest
It’s official, the Rolls-Royce Spirit of Innovation is the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft after hitting a maximum speed of 387.4 mph during one of its record-breaking runs, as certified by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI). It’s powered by a 400kW (500+ hp) electric powertrain that draws power from the most power-dense propulsion battery pack ever assembled in aerospace.



Rolls-Royce collaborated with aviation energy storage specialist Electroflight and automotive powertrain supplier YASA to make the electric powertrain a reality. The data collected from this project project, along with the world record runs, will help the company develop future electric power / propulsion systems for all-electric urban air mobility as well as hybrid-electric commuter aircraft.
