All-electric Rolls-Royce Phantom reportedly in development

The new car is expected to use technologies developed for the future BMW i7.

What if the next Rolls-Royce trades its V12 for a series of electric motors? This is what should happen very soon, according to the British publication Coach.

The Rolls-Royce Silent Shadow (a name registered by BMW at the end of last year) is expected to be a large 100% electric sedan, developed in collaboration with the Munich parent company. The styling could be inspired by the futuristic 103EX concept car, presented in 2016.

500 km of autonomy, and 3 tons!

The Silent Shadow would then recover the batteries and engines designed for the next BMW i7, by integrating them into the dedicated platform of the current Phantom.

According to sources cited by Autocar, propulsion and full versions will be offered, with an autonomy objective set at at least 500 km, despite a weight of around 3 tonnes.

Once the Silent Shadow is launched, Rolls-Royce should offer 100% electric engines on the rest of its range, starting with the Cullinan SUV.
