Rolls-Royce, the luxury car-maker will go electric in the next 10 years, its chief executive, Torsten Muller-Otvos, has told Arab News. Muller-Otvos was speaking at the launch in London of the Phantom VIII, the eighth generation of the company’s classic luxury limousine that first graced the roads in 1925.
He said: “Electrification is definitely the route to go. We have already launched last year a concept, Vision EX130. Within the next decade, Rolls-Royce will start to go electric.
“In the long term that is the way to go. For that reason, we also decided not to do intermediate steps with hybrid or plug-in hybrid because it would be too compromised and would not offer a convincing solution. If you really want to go emission-free then you have to go electric.”
