The future of the luxury motor car

Rolls-Royce is perhaps the most famous high-end luxury motor car manufacturer in the world, with a long and successful history of crafting vehicles renowned for comfort and refinement.

So how does it make the transition from 6.75-litre V8 combustion engines to the powertrains of the future? Electric vehicles are here, and Rolls-Royce acknowledges that it is time to make the shift.

A Rolls-Royce EV is likely to be a whole new model line, according to Autocar magazine, possibly using the ‘Silent Shadow’ moniker – a clever marriage of a famous Rolls-Royce brand and the noiseless propulsion electric offers.

Whatever form Rolls-Royce’s electric vehicle takes, it seems to be a perfect match. EVs are renowned for smooth power delivery and virtually silent motoring. Rolls-Royce already has both of those characteristics on lock, so an EV from the marque will slot in seamlessly.
