Berlin: Rolls-Royce has built a fully electric aircraft that is also the world’s fastest aircraft. Called the ‘Spirit of Innovation’, the aircraft can fly at lightning speeds of 623 kilometers per hour.

According to the company, the aircraft set three new world records last week. On November 16, Rolls-Royce’s electric plane reached a speed of 555 kilometers per hour, which was maintained for three kilometers, thus restoring the old record of 213 kilometers per hour. Then for a distance of 15 km it also crossed the target of 532 km per hour. The third record was the altitude at which he climbed 3000 meters and remained there for 202 seconds. But the most amazing of these is the record of the thirteenth electric plane.

It is equipped with a 400 kW electric powertrain propulsion system which has been declared as the most powerful battery in the aviation industry. Half of the funding came from the British government and the Aerospace Technology Institute. All data will be provided to international airlines.

According to the company, the Spirit of Innovation has flown two flights in less than a month. According to the company, this is an eco-friendly aircraft that has been tested on the sidelines of a conference on climate change. According to Rolls-Royce CEO Warren East, this is an unusual step in removing carbon from the atmosphere.

According to Rolls-Royce, it will build more electric cars and aircraft by 2030.
