Rolls Royce Builds Electric Phantom Concept Car


On display at the Geneva Motor Show next week will be Rolls-Royce's latest concept car: the electric-powered Phantom. Known as the Rolls-Royce 102EX, it's a new, near-silent, emissions-free version of the old classic.
 
The company built the luxury road-yacht; also named as Phantom Experimental Electric (EE), to begin testing on alternative drivetrains that could power Rolls cars of the future. Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos said: "I must be convinced that any alternative drive-train we choose for the future delivers an authentic Rolls-Royce experience."
 
The 102EX will soon undergo a global testing tour, where it will see parts of the Middle East, Asia, Europe and North America. Test conditions will study reliability and quality,
determine acceptable range between recharging, as well as extreme cold weather proving. Rolls said it wants to gather data on the reactions and opinions of owners, enthusiasts and the general public to find out what the world thinks about an electric Phantom.
