Rolls Royce Considering an EV (Again)

Company exec says effortless, quiet torque is perfect for its buyers.

Though luxury automaker Rolls Royce has confirmed that a plug-in hybrid will be an inevitable part of its future, no mention of an electric vehicle has been made since the 2011 Geneva 102EX concept. But now, it seems that the possibility may be back on the table. Head of Bespoke Sales and Marketing for Rolls, Richard Collar, told Auto Express that customers “loved” the 102EX, and that such a model would be a perfect addition to the company’s current lineup.
