Fully Charged visits Evolito & Electroflight

We recently welcomed Fully Charged to our HQ to find out more about Evolito and Electroflight’s journey towards sustainable air travel and experience the record-breaking ACCEL Spirit of Innovation.

Robert Llewellyn and Imogen Bhogal-Pierce caught up with our CEO & Co-founder Dr Chris Harris, to discuss the journey from automotive to aerospace, from YASA, to Evolito and now including Electroflight. They found out more about the ACCEL project with Stjohn Youngman and discussed engineering challenges facing electrification in the industry with Chief Engineer Mukesh Patel.

Now, our combined capabilities propose a unique solution to electric and hybrid aircraft, offering a fully electric powertrain for UAMs and General Aviation aircraft, revolutionising the way we travel. The Spirit of Innovation will be coming to The Science Museum soon, where you can see the engineering and technology behind the worlds fastest all-electric vehicle.

Electroflight acquired by Evolito

Electric propulsion company Evolito acquires aerospace battery company Electroflight to create full powertrain solutions capability

Having previously worked together, as YASA, we successfully powered the worlds fastest electric aircraft, the Spirit of Innovation to break the world speed record. Now as a wholly owned subsidiary of Evolito, we look forward to accelerating the possibilities for emissions-free air travel together.

“We are very excited to complete the acquisition of Electroflight today. The combined capabilities will enable us to deliver flexible solutions for our customers, from best-in-class motor and controller subsystems to fully-integrated electric powertrains.”
– Ajay Lukha, COO

We are pleased to announce that Evolito has acquired Electroflight, to offer a fully integrated powertrain and battery solutions to our customers. Our high-performance, low-weight axial-flux motors and controllers are smaller and lighter with a higher safety factor than any other competing electric propulsion technology. Evolito’s products enable a range of new electric propulsion applications, helping to accelerate the industry’s move towards net zero.
