Rolls-Royce is set to unveil its first electric vehicle which was openly revealed on Tuesday October 18, with a sticker price of $413,000.
In excess of 300 U.S. purchasers have already deposited stores for Rolls-Royce’s most memorable electric vehicle before its unveiling, as per the luxury automaker.
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos says the purchasers visited the organization’s base camp in Goodwood, Britain throughout recent weeks to get a sneak top at the Phantom, which was publicly unveiled on Tuesday.
The two-door car, which is sleeker than the typical Rolls, has a scope of around 320 miles and can go from 0-60 miles each hour in 4.4 seconds. Rolls-Royce has said its whole product offering will be completely electric by 2030.
Muller-Otvos said the purchasers deposited some money before they even saw the vehicle.
“Once they have seen it here, they are delighted,” he said. “The order book looks strong.”
The vehicle is the most expensive of EV car available and characterizes another class of what Rolls calls an “Ultra-luxury Electric Super Coupé.”
Muller-Otvos said the change to EVs is a characteristic for Rolls, since its vehicles are as of now popular for their smooth, calm rides and fast power.
“It needs to be a Rolls-Royce first,” Muller-Otvos said. “That means stability, brilliant quality, timeless materials, flight-on-land, silent propulsion. It carries all these genes Rolls-Royce is famous for.”
Muller-Otvos declined to give specific sales targets or goals for the Spectre. In 2021, Rolls-Royce had a record year in terms of sales and production, delivering 5,586 cars.
Among the special features in the Spectre are an illuminated front grille with 22 LEDs, a flowing aerodynamic “waft” line along the sides modeled after racing yachts and new digital intelligence system called Spirit. Its famous “Spirit of Ecstasy” hood ornament was also be redesigned, with a more modern look.
Other Rolls Royce models offer the popular “starlight headliner,” with over 1,400 tiny stars that light up on the car roof at night. As a special option, Spectre will offer the “Illuminated Fascia” of over 5,500 stars along the doors and roof.
“Spectre is the most perfect product that Rolls Royce has ever produced,” Muller-Otvos said.
