Rolls-Royce you are already working on your first electric model, which will arrive sometime in the next decade. This first EV of the British brand already has a name: Rolls-Royce Silent Shadow.

The Rolls-Royce Silent Shadow would use the Phantom platform as a basis and would benefit from BMW electric technology and with a battery over 100 kilowatt hours. In this way, it would achieve autonomy greater than 500 kilometers.

Rolls-Royce's strategy towards electrification does not include any intermediate steps, thus ruling out that it has hybrid or plug-in hybrids in its line-up.

According to Torsten Muller-Otvos, CEO of Rolls-Royce, electrification fits perfectly into company policy: “Because they are silent and powerful cars. That is the reason why we are going to go directly from combustion to electrification ”.

Rolls-Royce already flirted with electrification in 2011 when it presented at the Geneva Motor Show to the Rolls-Royce 120EX Concept. Based on a Phantom it was equipped with two electric motors with a total power of 395 horsepower.

This vehicle accelerated from 0 to 100 km / h in 8 seconds, had a maximum speed of 160 km / h and its autonomy reached 200 kilometers.
