A prophecy fulfilled, a promise kept, Rolls-Royce announces first fully electric car
The First Electric Rolls-Royce, called Spectre, will arrive in 2023
Rolls-Royce will roll out its first full-electric car in 2023 on its way to shifting to selling only battery-powered cars after 2030.
The ultra-luxury brand’s first two-door electronic vehicle will be the Spectre coupe, built on the same aluminum architecture that currently braces all the company’s models.
In a historic announcement, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars declared, that on-road testing of its first fully electric motor car is imminent. Rolls-Royce’s shift to electric cars is the most significant moment in the company’s history. In announcing this inspiring moment for the marque, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Chief Executive Officer, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said:
“Today is the most significant day in the history of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars since 4th May 1904. On that date, our founding fathers, Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce, first met and agreed that they were going to create ‘the best motor car in the world’.
“The cars they created, introduced to the world a true luxury experience and secured for Rolls-Royce the ultimate pinnacle position that it continues to occupy, unchallenged, to this day. The marque has continued to define the very best in internal combustion motoring for more than a century”.
According to the company’s CEO, it is not a prototype car and will be available at the end of 2023. He feels proud as the company starts using the On-Road Testing Program for its extraordinary product.
“I am proud to announce that Rolls-Royce is to begin the on-road testing program for an extraordinary new product that will elevate the global all-electric car revolution and create the first – and finest – the super-luxury product of its type. This is not a prototype. It’s the real thing, it will be tested in plain sight and our clients will take first deliveries of the car in the fourth quarter of 2023,” Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
