Electric Rolls Royce Phantom teased Phantom Experimental Electric one-off study confirmed for Geneva Motor Show debut.
How could a Rolls-Royce become even more refined? By running on electric, of course! That’s exactly the route the firm is taking – announcing plans to unveil a battery-powered Phantom at next week’s Geneva Motor Show.
It’s called the 102EX Phantom Experimental Electric, and has been built to show to customers over the next 12 months.Â
As well as gathering data on how the model performs, the firm wants to know if an electric Rolls is something its buyers would accept and ultimately purchase. Speaking about the car, CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: “We are seeking clarity on which alternative technologies may be suitable to drive Rolls-Royce cars of the future.”Â
There are no official plans to build an electric vehicle, but the concept will help the manufacturer identify an acceptable range to potential buyers, and establish how the car copes with a range of climatic conditions.
“I must be convinced that any alternative drivetrain delivers an authentic Rolls-Royce experience,” added Müller-Ötvös.
