Rolls-Royce Working on Electric Phantom

  • Published On: 13 November 2017

The company has stated that the all-new Phantom supports going full electric.

There will be an all-electric version of the Phantom in the future as the brand focuses on going electric in the next decade. According to company CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös, going electric is the "right way forward for the brand".

Müller-Ötvös stated that the platform underpinning the new Phantom is built to support electric vehicles. "The architecture of the new Phantom already copes for the electric requirement and is capable of delivering a full-electric drivetrain in the next decade," he said. "The push for electric is driven by many factors, one of them being that city centres might be out of bounds for combustion engines. And, of course, one would like to still drive a Phantom into the city centres. So, for that reason, we will offer Phantoms and Rolls-Royces with electric drivetrains."

An electric powertrain would work well under the hood as Rolls Royce Cars are known to be silent, and noise insulation is synonymous with the premium carmaker’s brand.
