The idea of ‘green cars’ keeps on growing. Even a brand like Rolls-Royce, where the engineers shouldn’t break their heads about this, will present enviromental friendly cars. After the Hybrid Ghost was announced, a first electric Phantom could hit the road in just 12 months.
Company CEO, Tom Purvis, has previously revealed a wish to produce an electric Phantom and with the BMW sponsorship of the 2012 London Olympics this could be the right move to meet the strong inner-city CO2 legislations. The Electric Phantom will only be available in limited numbers. In that way the powerfull petrol engines will stay more important for the German/British luxury car manufacturer.
