Electric cars are quickly becoming the mainstay way to travel without emissions, so the Rolls-Royce Accel Electric Airplane aims to identify what can be done to make air travel more efficient.

The airplane is presently under development in Gloucestershire and is positioned to be the fastest all-electric plane with zero emissions in the history of aviation. The Accel, which is short for "Accelerating the Electrification of Flight," boasts a battery pack with 6,000 densely-packed cells that is used to power a total of three motors with a lightweight profile. This enables the Rolls-Royce Accel Electric Airplane to have more than 500hp, a top speed that exceeds 300mph and a peak range of 200 miles to reframe preconceived notions of air travel efficiency.
