Debuting in October, the Spectre is the first production all-electric vehicle for Rolls-Royce. And if company bigwigs were worried about how the world’s elite would feel about driving an EV, they aren’t now; in fact, quite the opposite.
The legendary British luxury marque is now considering raising the production numbers for the two-door, four-seat coupe. And that’s even before production at the Goodwood factory has begun, with deliveries expected late this year and a base price of around US$400,00 – and no one buys a base Rolls-Royce.
“The order intake for the Spectre is far better at this moment than we would have expected,” said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös on a journalist call.” We have a couple of months to go, but if that trend continues then I’m pretty sure we need to adjust our plans.” Müller-Ötvös also added that orders went “far” into 2023.
The Spectre will likely replace the Wraith, the brand’s current coupe. It will join the four-door Ghost the the Cullinan SUV in the Rolls-Royce lineup.
