WHAT IF YOU COULD HAVE A 555KW-HR BATTERY PACK WITH 1200 WH/KG ENERGY DENSITY?
The VH-3-185 leverages all that VerdeGo Aero has learned in two prior generations to deliver the best piston-powered hybrid powerplant on the market. Featuring patent-pending air cooling and highly adapted customized parts throughout, this powerplant will deliver 185 kW continuous electrical power output in a 650 lb package with exceptional fuel efficiency of 0.34 lb/HP-hr. With a focus on simplified electronics and engine operation, this conformal product is being developed in close cooperation with the FAA as we seek Part 33 certification.
