Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom Experimental Electric revealed


On 1 and 2 March, the Rolls-Royce stand will also debut 102EX, a one-off, fully electric powered Phantom that will serve as a test bed to gather a bank of owner research in 2011. This will be crucial in informing future decisions on alternative drive-trains for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. 102EX will undertake a global test programme that takes in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. Through test drives, owners will be given the opportunity to experience an alternative drive-train technology and to feed back their experiences, thoughts and concerns directly to Rolls-Royce. There are no plans to develop a production variant, but Geneva will start a dialogue with existing owners and stakeholders, posing as well as answering questions of its audience. Comments will be collated through the web portal www.electricluxury.com that will also chart the car’s progress on tour throughout the year.

  2. ? perfection or compromise? both yes it would be awesome no noise lot of tourch but 3 meter range /-:

  3. thats not the problem batteris have problem giving a little plastic boxs long range how are you supposed to give a 2.5 ton rolls royce long rang it possible but not with todays batterys.

  4. This is cool. The only problem with this is how do we get a simulated petrol-engine sound.

  5. Obviously a time traveller from the future, she’s got hidden depths your mum.

  6. - Dear Rolls Royce: Please send a vehicle my way for test. I promise to give great feedback. :-)

  7. Electrics are the only engine capable of giving maximum torque at 0 RPM, making them more powerful load pullers than even diesel engines. Furthermore the electric motor and regen technologies have both matured. The weak point in this design will always be the battery. If there is a generational leap, one can easily replace a battery – making it the first ever upgradable vehicle. And there will be less money and weight spent “silencing” the motor. Bring it on, baby!

  8. -Torsten Müller Ötvös, a proper British name for a British CEO of a British company…-
    No just the brand British… the car is perfect German engineering… the CEO Hungarian German background…
    The British was not able to pull out the Rolls from the trouble. The BMW did.

  9. @VioletFlame137 You have strayed a bit too far from psychological principle here. If someone said the ads made them angry, sad, or suicidal then you might be on the right path, depending on other factors. My annoyance, however, is no different than a mosquito buzzing in the ear. There is no emotional investment or connection. Please be very careful when making such bold statements if you wish to be taken seriously by those of us who are educated.
