Rolls‑Royce goes electric with new 585PS Spectre EV

Rolls-Royce has finally pulled the wraps off the Spectre, which at a distance looks like a fairly straightforward follow-up to the Wraith. Its familiar silhouette betrays its significance however, for the Spectre is the very first all-electric Rolls-Royce, dispensing with the familiar twin-turbo V12 in favour of electric motors and a battery. Fitting, given the remit of a Rolls-Royce is silence and serenity and that suitability was noted as far back as 120 years ago by none other than company co-founder, Charles Rolls himself.

"The electric car is perfectly noiseless and clean. There is no smell or vibration. They should become very useful when fixed charging stations can be arranged". We wonder what he'd think of today's infrastructure of "fixed charging stations"...
