Breaking: All Production Rolls Royce Spectre EV Coupe Has Been Sold Out Till 2025
Rolls-Royce Spectre is the company’s first EV and it falls into a segment of its own. According to the maker, it’s an “ultra-luxury super coupe sedan” powered by two motors, all-wheel drive capable of delivering 577 hp or 900 Nm instant torque.
At first, the vehicle was announced with around 418 km range on a single charge but during a media meeting, the CEO said that 500 km of autonomy would be more than enough for its customers because otherwise, too great compromises would have to be made when designing the Spectre. So the company focused on achieving improved aerodynamics – the best from a Rolls-Royce vehicle yet and by some distance.
During the meeting, Rolls-Royce’s CEO said that the demand for the fully-electric Spectre is higher than initially anticipated, so customers who order now may get their car in 2025. The first shipments are planned for Q4 2023, but those units belong to people who were first to order.
It’s not uncommon to wait more than a year, maybe even a year and a half, in the luxury segment, but customers won’t be happy to know that their ultra-premium vehicle will arrive in two years or so. However, that’s one of Rolls-Royce’s main appeals – its hand-crafted vehicles that take a lot of time to make.
Rolls-Royce usually delivers within 12-15 months’ time, but the Spectre is clearly a special case, not to mention all the customizations and features available for the car add quite a bit of complexity.
