The UK witnesses a historic moment with the dealer debut of the all-electric super coupé, Rolls-Royce Spectre, signaling the onset of an all-electric era in Rolls-Royce’s history.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has celebrated a momentous occasion with the UK dealer debut of its much-anticipated all-electric super coupé, the Spectre. Kicking off from London, the model is set for a comprehensive tour across the UK. The move comes after the initial showcase of this revolutionary automobile in Mayfair, attracting an overwhelmingly positive response from global media, clients, and brand enthusiasts.
Why It Matters
This unveiling marks a significant shift in Rolls-Royce’s 119-year old heritage. The UK, being the brand’s home market, has always held a pivotal role. The display of Spectre across the country is not only a celebration of British craftsmanship but also a herald of the brand’s electric future.
Back in 2021, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars had declared their commitment to electric technology. The announcement of Spectre, their first all-electric car, due for customer deliveries in the last quarter of 2023, was a testament to this commitment. Furthermore, they had announced that by 2030, their entire portfolio would go electric. Since then, Spectre has undergone a rigorous testing programme of 2.5 million kilometres and made its worldwide debut in West Sussex last October.
On June 1st, the world’s first ultra-luxury electric super coupé made its UK dealer debut in Berkeley Street, Mayfair, London. It is now all set for its UK tour, inviting clients to experience the brand’s electric future and appreciate this remarkable automobile.
Spectre symbolizes the advent of a thrilling new chapter in Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ narrative and the beginning of their all-electric era. This shift aligns with the marque’s historical connection with electric technologies, dating back to co-founder Charles Rolls’ prophecy of an electric future in 1900. Since then, Rolls-Royce has displayed the potential for electric vehicles through experimental concepts like the 102EX and the 103EX. With the arrival of Spectre, Rolls-Royce’s commitment to an electric future is no longer a prophecy, but a promise fulfilled.
