Submission + - Boeing's Hybrid Electric Airliner Of The Future (gizmag.com)

fergus07 writes: Borne out of the same NASA research program that gave birth to MIT's D "double bubble," Boeing's Subsonic Ultra Green Aircraft Research (SUGAR) Volt concept is a twin-engine aircraft design notable for its trussed, elongated wings and electric battery gas turbine hybrid propulsion system — a system designed to reduce fuel burn by more than 70 percent and total energy use by 55 percent.
