Rolls-Royce’s first electric car arrives this decadeSeptember 23, 2020
As part of his interview, CEO of the automaker Thorsten Müller-Otwös said that the first electric car in the history of the luxury brand will be presented this decade. He added that work is currently underway to create it.
Automotive News Europe, who recently spoke with Rolls-Royce CEO Thorsten Müller-Otwös, says the company is working on its first electric vehicle. Also, there doesn’t appear to be any plans for a hybrid vehicle. It looks like Rolls-Royce will invest all its money in electric motors or traditional internal combustion engines.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard executives from a London-based company talk about a move, albeit in part, to electric motors.
The brand’s electric concept cars were unveiled almost a decade ago, and Müller-Plumb has repeatedly stated that electric vehicles are the future. Rolls-Royce executives say their customers do not want electric motors in the brand’s models. But with many cities around the world planning to ditch petrol / diesel vehicles in the near future, the company is looking to offer electric vehicles.
Exactly when the first Rolls-Royce electric car will appear is unknown – as the brand’s CEO said, it should happen before the end of this decade. The novelty will obviously be built on the same architecture as the current models, and perhaps the electric car could replace the Dawn or Wraith in the Rolls-Royce model line.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the updated Rolls-Royce Ghost 2021 sedan has been presented. Rolls-Royce has presented the 2021 Ghost sedan. The luxurious British car has received an updated appearance, as well as an abundance of the most modern technologies. The prices for the new product are also known.
