Under the FAQ -> Powerplant section of the Cirrus web site they talk about other models of the SR-2X. Specifically they say they are focusing NEXT on an all-electric version with a 310HP engine. I’m assuming they mean to get rid of vacuum powered instruments…
I am expecting a copy of the contract for both the SR-20 and SR-22 from Cirrus. Among other things I’m trying to decide between the (Relatively) known wait for a -20, taking a chance on purchasing an earlier slot in a year or so, or getting in line for a -22. I Live in CA and would put the better climb and ceiling of the -22 to good use.
Regarding the -22, when I spoke to Cirrus last week they reported 59 deposits on the -22 BUT still have no information about that aircraft. I’m leaning towards the SR-22 at this time, will decide in the next week.
Any comments about what the heck an electric airplane might be OR the SR-22?
