Rolls-Royce unveils electric Phantom

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars plans to expand the range with the first electric car in the history of the brand.

In an interview with Roadshow on Monday, August 10, Rolls-Royce CEO Thorsten Otwos-Müller said the automaker intends to create an electric car, but the project should pay off, since the company’s management does not plan to invest in unprofitable products.

The Phantom limousine, which changed its generation in 2017, may become the brand’s debut electric car. Young and affluent brand customers are increasingly interested in cars that do not have an internal combustion engine, and Rolls-Royce has declared its readiness to meet their needs. The electric Phantom could begin production as early as 2022.

Rolls-Royce already has experience in developing an electric car. 9 years ago, in 2011, a demonstration of the conceptual model Phantom 102EX with a power reserve of 200 km took place. But the serial production of the novelty did not start.

In addition, it was previously reported that Rolls-Royce has unveiled a new teaser for the 2021 Ghost. The new model will be “future-oriented” with very minor aesthetic changes.
