Full Scale Electric Extra

Ran across this in the coverage of the 2016 EAC; Siemens displayed a full scale Extra with a 260KW electric motor. Couldn't find much details about the aircraft itself, but there is info about the motor development on the web. Here is the caption that was with the photo:


ELECTRO-EXTRA! Presented at AERO 2016 in Friedrichshafen! How do you find it? Interesting? Future of aerobatics?

At the fair in friedrichshafen Germany was presented electrical extra, what say you? Think Electric aircraft are the real future?

Siemens AG: Foyer West 201 Aerobatics-capable trainer aircraft of Extra Aircraft, which is equipped with a Siemens electric motor with an output of 230/260kW and a power-weight ratio of 5kW/kg.
