Rolls-Royce announces their very first EV, the Spectre. In a historic statement, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Chief Executive Officer, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, said: “Today is the most significant day in the history of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars since 4th May, 1904. On that date, our founding fathers, Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce, first met and agreed that they were going to create ‘the best motor car in the world’.

“Using the most advanced technology available to them at the time and by applying their remarkable engineering minds, these two pioneers elevated early internal combustion engine cars, from noisy, uncomfortable and rudimentary means of transportation, by setting a completely new benchmark of distinction.

“The cars they created, introduced to the world a true luxury experience and secured for Rolls- Royce the ultimate pinnacle position that it continues to occupy, unchallenged, to this day. The marque has continued to define the very best in internal combustion motoring for more than a century.

“Today, 117 years later, I am proud to announce that Rolls-Royce is to begin the on-road testing programme for an extraordinary new product that will elevate the global all-electric car revolution and create the first – and finest – super-luxury product of its type. This is not a prototype. It’s the real thing, it will be tested in plain sight and our clients will take first deliveries of the car in the fourth quarter of 2023.”

It was Charles Rolls who prophesied an electrified future for automobiles, and with the announcement of the Spectre, Rolls-Royce has kept their promise to go fully electric by the beginning of this decade.

The Spectre, which Rolls-Royce states is not a prototype but the actual car to be sold, will be tested in plain sight, in different conditions around the world. The test will cover 2.5 million km, which the ultra luxury brand says is the equivalent of 400 years of use of a Rolls-Royce; a test that Rolls-Royce says will literally accelerate the brand into the future.
