This week Rolls-Royce unveiled the Spectre, the marque’s first fully-electric motor car. The Spectre marks the start of Rolls-Royce’s initiative to phase out its V12 engine and sell only electric cars from 2030. 

Whilst official performance figures will be released in the second quarter of 2023, a range of 323 miles between charges is predicted courtesy of a 120kwh battery. A 120kWh battery is one of the largest on any production EV. 

Although the Spectre is described as a spiritual successor to the two-door Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, it is otherwise completely unrelated to the car. Many manufacturers have electrified their existing combustion cars, Rolls-Royce wanted to build a real electric car designed from the very beginning to be an electric Rolls-Royce. 

The Design

It is unmistakably a Rolls-Royce, from its rear-hinged doors to its huge grille (the widest ever on a Rolls-Royce). As expected with any car from the marque its interior screams luxury and offers near-infinite bespoke possibilities, from the all-new front seat design inspired by British tailoring to the ability to customise the digital architecture too. SPIRIT manages the car’s functions and is seamlessly integrated into the Rolls-Royce Whispers application allowing owners to interact with their car remotely and receive live information from intelligence specialists. 

The Spectre is available to order now with deliveries commencing Q4 of 2023. Pricing for the Spectre is expected to be in the region of £275,000.
