Rolls-Royce has hinted that if battery technology improves in the coming years, a fully-electric Rolls-Royce model could become a reality.
While speaking at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, head of Rolls-Royce Torsten Muller-Otvos said “Suppose we find a battery technology that can offer ranges that are acceptable to our customers. I can definitely imagine a fully electric Rolls-Royce.”
The British marque has previously described its disinterest in producing electric vehicles but the change of heart comes alongside ever-increasing pressure from regulators for car manufacturers to reduce their emissions.
Importantly, Muller-Otvos said that there currently isn’t a timeframe on when it could make an electric car.
