Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce to go all-electric by 2030

Luxury automaker Rolls-Royce will stop making gasoline-powered cars by 2030 as it progresses to go fully electric. The legacy manufacturer even has plans to launch its first electric vehicle (EV) in 2023.

This follows other high-end automakers like Jaguar Land Rover and Bentley. The latter will also be moved to a fully electric line by 2030, and the former will be fully electrified by 2025.

The first fully electric Rolls-Royce will be called the Specter and hit the roads in late 2023.

BMW owns the luxury carmaker, but is only committed to being 50 percent electric by 2030. It also owns the Mini car brand, which plans to be fully electric by 2030.

At this stage in the move to electric vehicles, it is no longer surprising to see a company like Rolls-Royce switch to all-electric. If you are interested in more images of the automaker’s Specter EV, you can visit the Rolls-Royce website. That said, beyond the images, the company hasn’t revealed much more about the vehicle.
