The highly-anticipated arrival of Rolls-Royce’s first all-electric motor car Spectre is finally here.
Marking the beginning of a new era for Rolls-Royce, Spectre has been years in the making and is a landmark moment for the company. In 1900 Rolls-Royce co-founder, Charles Rolls first foresaw the need for electric vehicles, seeing it as a clean, noiseless alternative to the internal combustion engine, even as far back as 1900.
This was followed more recently by Rolls-Royce CEO, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, who made a public commitment to electrification by announcing that he would bring a fully-electric Rolls-Royce to market within the current decade.
And now, Spectre is revealed as the world’s first Ultra-Luxury Electric Super Coupé is the spiritual successor to Phantom Coupé.
“Spectre possesses all the qualities that have secured the Rolls-Royce legend. This incredible motor car, conceived from the very beginning as our first fully-electric model, is silent, powerful and demonstrates how perfectly Rolls-Royce is suited to electrification. Spectre’s all-electric powertrain will assure the marque’s sustained success and relevance while dramatically increasing the definition of each characteristic that makes a Rolls-Royce a Rolls-Royce.” Said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Spectre is not only an historic moment for Rolls-Royce, but also an historic moment for electrification – with Spectre, the marque confirms that the technology has reached a standard that can contain the Rolls-Royce experience. To that end, Rolls-Royce has confirmed that by the end of 2030 its entire product portfolio will be fully electric.
Spectre will be available for customers in 2023.
