What are Rolls-Royce cars associated with? Certainly with exceptional comfort, luxury and powerful petrol engines. Well, in the near future, the last step may be crossed on this list.
The future is electric
Rolls-Royce is the second BMW brand to announce a transition to electric vehicles. Previously, we could hear such words from Mini. It is important to note here that we are dealing with complete electricity, so the combustion models will disappear from the output.
How about information Britons, the whole portfolio should be electrified by 2030. After this year, the brand will no longer be involved in the production or sale of any vehicles powered by internal combustion engines.
Most likely, the announced plans were influenced by the intentions of the European Union. Early we learnedthat it will not be possible to buy a new car with an internal combustion engine in the EU after 2035. Well, whether we like it or not, the future of the car industry is electric.
First electrician in two years
Rolls-Royce will introduce several electric models in the coming years to fulfill these declarations. The first is going to be Spectre, which will launch in two years. On the other hand, the first deliveries to customers will start in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to know many details. Rolls-Royce was just proud of the photos of the hidden car. However, we can tell from them that the Specter will be similar to the combustion Wraith. Of course, under the hood there will no longer be a 625hp V12, but an electric motor, or rather a few motors that draw energy from the battery.
The company intends to test the models at a total distance of 2.5 million kilometers to provide the best electric mechanic on the day of the premiere. We can expect high-quality construction, great power, and expensive materials inside. I wonder if the manufacturer will be able to combine the interior of the classic with the latest technologies, which must be admitted, is a very difficult challenge, especially in the era of large displays put on cars.
Vaccination remains an important issue. Hopefully the prospective owner of the Rolls-Royce Specter won’t have to visit charging stations too often.
