The new all-electric Rolls-Royce Spectre has concluded its winter testing in freezing conditions just 55km from the Arctic Circle, surviving -40˚C temperatures in Sweden. The Spectre has now completed a quarter of a planned 2.5 million km testing programme.
As CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös says: “The announcement of every new Rolls-Royce motor car carries a great weight of expectation, but Spectre is unquestionably the most anticipated product in the marque’s modern history. This is because it is much more than a product. It is a symbol for our bright, bold electric future, and it represents a seismic shift in our powertrain technology.
“It is for this reason that we have created a testing programme that is as significant and historical as Spectre itself. The extraordinary undertaking of educating Spectre to think and behave like a Rolls-Royce will cover 2.5 million kilometres, which is a simulation of more than 400 years of use for a Rolls-Royce.”
