Future: the first electric Rolls Royce, “Spectre”

New spy photos of the next, and by now imminent, electric car, the Specter, have appeared on the Rolls-Royce website.

With huge 23-inch alloy wheels and low-shoulder tires, this big new Rolls-Royce coupe is supposed to succeed the current Phantom Coupe, which has been on the market for around 20 years, in theory. The clue that would lead to this hypothesis would be found in the design of the front headlights, split over two levels with the daytime running lights placed higher than the low beams, a configuration until now exclusive to the top of the Phantom price list.

The official technical information released to date by the manufacturer has been minimal, what we know for sure is the weight of the battery pack, about 700 kg.

At the conclusion of these rigorous tests, Rolls-Royce has announced that the Specter has thus completed a quarter of the test program, which will still last for about 2.5 million kilometres. The first electric-powered Rolls-Royce is expected in dealerships around the world by the end of 2023.
