Rolls Royce Luxury Phantom which gives 15 miles to the gallon, is hardly a car for the carbon-conscious. But all that might be about to change.
Rolls-Royce is planning an electric limousine, which would be rechargeable...with zero emissions.There has been speculation for two years that Rolls-Royce was planning a top secret electric model.
Autocar reports that Rolls Royce could have an Electric Run version of its Phantom super-luxury car on the road in the year 2011: "Internally it's thought that the near-silence of electric propulsion, and the fact that full torque is available from a standstill, would align perfectly with Rolls-Royce's core values. Engineers are currently hard at work making this a reality, although a running prototype has yet to hit the road."
