Equipped with a 500 hp (400 kW) electric powertrain and the latest energy storage technologies, the aircraft paves the way for a new generation of urban air mobility concepts, including air taxis.

Pour Rob Watson, directeur de Rolls-Royce Electrical, " ce système et les capacités en cours de développement aideront à positionner Rolls-Royce en tant que leader technologique offrant des systèmes d'alimentation au marché de la mobilité aérienne urbaine ".
