Electric Flight is Here and It's Breaking Records!

Imogen and Robert wanted to meet the team from Rolls Royce, Evolito, Yasa and Electroflight to find out how they’ve made electric flight take off with the Accel Plane!

Recording an eye watering 345 mph, the Accel Plane is officially the fastest electric vehicle on the planet! Before it retires to the Science Museum.

From axial flux motors, advanced cooling and packing more torque than a Tesla – this plane is choc-a-bloc with astounding technologies that are paving the way to electric aviation.
