Rolls-Royce and Hyundai have announced a partnership that will focus on bringing electric propulsion and hydrogen fuel cell technologies to the aircraft vehicles.
The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that includes five strategic points.
“We are delighted to partner with Hyundai Motor Group which provides a valuable opportunity to leverage and build on the capabilities each company brings from the aerospace and automotive sectors. The Advanced Air Mobility Market offers great commercial potential, and this collaboration supports our joint ambitions to lead the way in the Advanced Air Mobility Market”, Rob Watson from Rolls-Royce comments.
The two companies want to develop and produce electric powertrains and hydrogen ones for the future vertical take off electric vehicles. The first fruit of this collaboration is set to be unveiled in 2025.
