Rolls-Royce has revealed plans for a record breaking elecrtic plane capable of reaching 300mph.

劳斯莱斯正在计划开发能达到破纪录的每小时300英里的电动飞机。

Called Accel, the firm hopes it will take to the skies next year to claim a world record.

劳斯莱斯将飞机取名为Accel,希望能在明年试飞并打破世界记录。

The current record for an all-electric plane, set by Siemens in 2017, is 210 mph - which the Accel could smash.

目前,最快行驶记录是由Siemens全电动飞机在2017年达到的210英里每小时。Accel将有希望打破这一纪录。

Scheduled to take to the skies over Great Britain in 2020, the aircraft will reach a speed of 300 mph – and quite likely more – making it the fastest all-electric plane in history.

Accel计划于2020年在英国试飞,预估的速度将达到300英里每小时-并且有希望超过这个速度,如果能达到预期,Accel将是历史上最快的全电动飞机。

The project is part of a Rolls-Royce initiative called ACCEL – short for 'Accelerating the Electrification of Flight,'intended to boost sales of electric planes - powered by Tolls-Royce engines.

电动飞机的开发是ACCEL(加速电动化航空的缩写)计划的一部分,该计划致力于在Tolls-Royce发动机的帮助下增加电动飞机的销售量。

The firm says it will 'pioneer a third wave of aviation'.

劳斯莱斯说这将领导第三波航空热。

'This plane will be powered by a state-of-the-art electrical system and the most powerful battery ever built for flight,' said Matheu Parr, the ACCEL Project Manager for Rolls-Royce.

“这架飞机将有最高端的电子系统和最持久的飞机电能供应,” 劳斯莱斯的ACCEL的项目经理马修帕尔这么说道。

'In the year ahead, we're going to demonstrate its abilities in demanding test environments before going for gold in 2020 from a landing strip on the Welsh coastline.'

“未来的一年,我们将在2020年的威尔士海岸正式挑战世界纪录之前,展示在苛刻的测试环境下仍能保持优秀表现的能力”

The project will be based at Gloucestershire airport outside of Cheltenham.

这个项目的基地设在切尔滕纳姆以外的格洛斯特郡机场。

Engineers, designers, and data specialists from Roll-Royce are working with electric motor and controller manufacturer YASA and the aviation start-up Electroflight to create the single-seater prop-plane.

劳斯莱斯的工程师,设计师以及数据分析师将和电动机及控制器生产商YASA和新兴的Eletroflight航空公司合作来开发能承载一人的样本飞机。
