Rolls-Royce to Unveil Electric Car

Luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce announced that it will show the “world’s first battery-electric vehicle for the ultra-luxury segment” in the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on March 1. The Rolls-Royce 102EX is said to be a fully-electric version of the RR Phantom.

Not much features and specs were revealed, but given the heavy weight associated with most Rolls-Royces, expect a hundred more pounds would be added for batteries. In this case, the car would not travel too far and too fast on a single electric charge.

After in Geneva, the 102EX concept electric car will be shown in major cities around the world to gauge customer interest, even letting customers get behind the wheel. Rolls-Royce, however, has no plans to develop a production model just yet.
