What electric twin aircraft are currently flying?

Wednesday night, somewhere between about 7:30pm and 8:30pm (unfortunately I did not have a watch and could not look at a clock) an aircraft flew pretty low over downtown Worcester, ma, I am presuming flying out of and into ORH. It sounded a lot more like a drone than a plane, and was quite honestly pretty low. But it was definitely along the ORH flight path for 29/11, and was awfully big for a drone from the quick glimpse I got of it. I'm just trying to figure out what it was.

If blocked, a bizjet.

A small bizjet would definitely be the right size.

There are no certified, passenger electric planes

Were the engines propeller or ducted?

Also, was it a rotorcraft or airplane?

Caught only a glimpse of it at night, so I am not sure. I am pretty sure it was an airplane, it moved like one. I was wondering if the Eviation was test flying - it would make sense for them to test flying it into ORH.

Helicopters IMHO will be the first civilian electric aircraft in mass use and acceptance.
