few months ago, Rolls-Royce teased its first-ever production electric vehicle.
The Spectre will be launched in the fourth quarter of 2023 and is expected to
effectively replace the Wraith in the British firm’s lineup. Not much is known
about the silent Rolls for now, but a new report indicates it may use the most
powerful electric powertrain developed by BMW Group.
has a lengthy article about the company’s first electric vehicle, which won’t
be based on an existing platform by BMW. Instead, Rolls-Royce will use a
bespoke architecture, though it doesn’t have its own electric powertrain.
Developing one from scratch would require tons of money and a lot of time, and
Autocar reports the Spectre could use the drivetrain that is currently under
development for the BMW iX M60.
to early reports, this new dual-motor setup will give the iX approximately 600
horsepower reaching all four wheels. This should be enough power for the large
and heavy SUV to sprint from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (0-100
kilometers per hour) in about 4.0 seconds. Such numbers seem like a good
replacement for Rolls-Royce’s legendary V12.
automaker is not ready to reveal more details - officially or through
interviews - and all we know for now is that the Spectre will undergo a
comprehensive testing program. It will cover around 1.55 million miles,
representing what the manufacturer says is the use of a Rolls for 400 years.
The model will be handbuilt at Goodwood on the same lines as the current range
of Rolls-Royce models.
Spectre will be the first major step in the brand’s strategy to go all-electric
by 2030. Just like a few other brands, including Acura, Rolls-Royce will skip
the hybrid phase as a bridge technology and will instead focus entirely on the
development of EV models. The V12 engine, meanwhile, will live for "a long
time,” Rolls CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös recently said.
