New Rolls Royce Electric Car: There’s no denying that electric cars are quickly becoming the next big thing in the car industry. They’re environmentally friendly, quiet, and more cost-effective to maintain than traditional gas-powered vehicles… And now, there’s a new kind of electric car out there that blows all other electric cars out of the water!
New Rolls Royce Electric:
The all-electric, zero-emissions car will cost £250,000 ($360,000) and has an 80kWh battery that can power it for 500km. That is enough to take you from London to Edinburgh (407 miles) before needing to recharge. The lithium batteries are lightweight compared to conventional batteries making them more efficient. Rolls Royce also say that its manufacturing process is clean meaning there’s no danger of acid leaks or sulfuric emissions. Eliminating these issues removes a potential barrier to customer adoption as they do not need to have dedicated infrastructure at their home or place of work, said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in a statement.
With only 22 kilometers (about 13 miles) of driving range per charge, these cars aren’t practical for longer trips. However, they’re great for short distances or stop-and-go traffic — you can plug them in when you park. You’ll pay about $10 to fully charge one of these luxury EVs at home. And, depending on your electricity rates, driving one might even be cheaper than filling up with gas! These cars are also environmentally friendly — they produce zero emissions. While these electric Rolls Royces cost $325,000 each (though there is also a cheaper model for around $65,000), that hefty price tag does include maintenance costs over time as well as access to an extensive network of charging stations throughout Europe.
The newest car to join British auto company Rolls-Royce’s fleet is not your typical, gas guzzling vehicle. Instead, it is an all-electric luxury sedan. The Sweptail has been dubbed the most beautiful car in the world, but don’t expect to see it on your local roads—it is strictly available to VIPs. The Sweptail has gone 500 km (310 miles) without recharging —an impressive feat for any fully electric vehicle.
A British company has taken the first steps toward mass producing its own fleet of all-electric cars—making an even more expensive version of Tesla’s top product. At £325,000 ($430,000), The Cullinan — named after another gemstone — will retail for nearly twice as much as an entry level Tesla Model S 90D, which starts at $82,500. However, that price tag is exactly what you’d expect from a company like Rolls Royce; Its cars have long been some of the most luxurious in the world. The Cullinan’s maker claims that thanks to its batteries and other technological advancements, it can go 500 km (310 miles) between charges.
The company is British automaker Rolls-Royce. On Wednesday, it unveiled its first all-electric vehicle: an updated version of its existing luxurious Phantom sedan, which will go 500 kilometers (311 miles) on one charge. At least that’s what CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said at a media event in London. The vehicle has two high capacity batteries—one for use when driving and another to act as a backup if there’s ever a problem with one battery or both. At launch, there will be only one model of the battery car, but other models are expected soon after.
