Rolls-Royce has unveiled their plans to launch a flying taxi, an airborne product that can take off and land vertically. The luxury car and engine manufacturer has claimed that it will take less than five years for the plan to be operational and fully functional.

The hybrid electric vehicle will belong to EVTOL category of products and plans regarding the same were made official at Farnborough Airshow. The claimed range for the plane will fall around 800 kilometers while maximum flying speed will remain around 320 kph. The seating capacity will remain 4-5 passengers per plane.

Rolls Royce believes that city travel can be managed by the electric power, but long-distance commute can only be achieved through turbine engines at present moment. The hybrid setup can help reduce the use of fuel in these types of engines as, once the plane comes into a static state of power need, the contribution from the electric motor can be increased.

The brand is not the only one to enter the airborne passenger vehicle space as Uber, Google and many other tech giants have also proposed plans for future commute selection. As electric cars are gaining traction, electrification of all sectors will take place for sure.

Rolls-Royce is an expert in terms of engine manufacturing and making small jet engine won’t be a big challenge for them. They have spent millions of dollars on this research and getting a practical plane in 3-5 years is quite tempting. Also, early 2020’s will see other brands entering into new automotive dimensions.

Rolls-Royce itself will be working on an electric car for the luxury car lovers, leaving behind their mammoth sized petrol engines in the upcoming decade for sure. Market experts believe that the 4-5 passenger limit can be increased to 10-15 passengers once the technology comes into working states and prove itself effective against rising traffic.

The Rolls-Royce captured the complete attention of everyone present at 2016 Geneva Motor Show when they uncovered the sinister Black Badge Editions of the Ghost Saloon and Wraith Coupe.

00 (8)

The darker version of the Rolls’ feature a glossy jet-black Spirit of Ecstasy figurehead on the bonnet, premium black detailing on the chrome surfaces, and a new black badge. The intense black appearance of the car is a result of multiple layers of paint meticulously coated to ensure utmost quality. Rolls’ CEO describes the murdered-out theme seen on the both the cars, as: “ The alter ego of Rolls-Royce; darker, more assertive more confident and powerful, and more demanding”.​

00 (2)
Stepping inside, the Ghost features purple interiors, while the Wraith greets us with remarkable blue finishing. Roll’s says they’ve used ​“ aerospace-grade aluminium-threaded carbon-fibre composite”​ on the dash, and around the cabin.

00 (1)
The powerplants of both the cars have also received prominent upgrades, with the Ghost’s bi-turbo 6.6-liter V12 tuned to produce an extra 40 horsepower and 60Nm of torque totaling to 603 Hp and 840 NM. The reworked gearbox now stays on the lower gear a little longer to achieve a higher rpm. The Wraith’ also gets a beefed up engine now delivering an extra torque of 70 NM, totaling to 869 NM, but producing the same 623 horses of power.

00 (9)

The coupe however gets an improved air suspension, revised drive shafts, and same reworked gearbox as the Ghost. Both the cars also get lightweight carbon-fiber alloy wheels contributing to the dominating look. The prices haven’t been unveiled yet, but they’re definitely going to burn a hole in the pocket of anyone planning to buy one of these mean machines.
