It is hard to believe that the topmost luxury car maker in the world, Rolls-Royce can go all-electric. The legendary British mega-luxury auto maker, Rolls-Royce is known for its grandeur and magnificence that exudes past glory. Hence, it is probably unthinkable that the massive and exquisite RR models would be ditching their powerful internal combustion engines and adopt all-electric technology. However, this is exactly what Rolls-Royce is planning. The British auto behemoth is considering churning out only electric car models by 2040, in its bid to ditch the internal combustion engines which are currently the soul of mega-luxury models.
This is a huge move coming from a mega auto brand, as Rolls-Royce currently offers nothing other than its massive 12 cylinder petrol mills under the hoods of its offerings. However, the iconic brand is bracing up for a massive change and is ready to dump its 12 cylinder internal combustion engines to embrace "full electric" drivetrain by 2040, as the global auto industry is preparing to achieve that goal, the company’s Chief Executive Officer Torsten Müller-Ötvös told the media.
