Rolls-Royce claims it has broken the world speed record for an electric-powered aircraft­—623km/h (387.4mph)— with Spirit of Innovation with a 400kW battery. The aero-engine manufacturer said it had submitted data from a Nov. 16 flight at Boscombe Down, United Kingdom.


In addition, the Derby-based business claims to have broken the record for the fastest electric plane climb to 3000 metres by 60 seconds, with a recorded timing of 202 seconds, according to the corporation.
