Although no technical details about the Rolls-Royce Spectre have been shared as yet, the electric luxury vehicle is likely to make a strong mark in an exclusive club of vehicles which cater to the rich and famous around the world. And the Spectre will only be a start. “With this new product we set out our credentials for the full electrification of our entire product portfolio by 2030," said Muller-Otvos. “By then, Rolls-Royce will no longer be in the business of creating or selling any internal combustion engine products."
