Re: What is the minimum battery power density needed for a 2000nm range?

If we compare electric vs ICE cars the difference in efficiency is much bigger than double. It would make no sense to go electric without a huge efficiency advantage. For example Tesla Model S uses 18.0 kWh/100KM and comparable ICE vehicle Audi A6 uses 10L/100KM Assuming energy density of Gasoline ...

Re: Airbus A321XLR Development Production Testing Thread - 2021

Frontier/Spirit and those that pack the A321s dense will love this for getting full planes transcon.. A vanilla A321classic with Sharklets and 1x ACT will do that just fine, and has been doing holiday flights like HEL-TFS without trouble. And that is an extra 400nm over JFK-LAX. What means "mo...
