Rolls-Royce Spectre – Is it Tesla beater…..? Well it costs ten times more

Rolls-Royce is elevating its pinnacle of luxury to the electric avenue with the debut of the 2024 Spectre coupe, an all-electric marvel. While James Bond might not raise his classic martini to this new entrant, given his cinematic clashes with an organization of the same name, he’d likely be tempted to get behind the wheel of this majestic coupe. Sharing its foundation with the esteemed Phantom sedan and the robust Cullinan SUV, the Spectre is energized by a duo of electric motors that deliver a robust 577 horsepower. It boasts an estimated range of up to 291 miles per charge, which, while not competing with the extended ranges of more affordable counterparts like the Tesla Model S or Lucid Motors Air, is substantial for its class. With a price tag around $450,000, the Spectre’s clientele may prefer the convenience of their private jets for longer journeys. The Spectre heralds Rolls-Royce’s foray into electric vehicles, with a commitment to replace all gasoline models with EVs by 2030.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

Every Spectre is equipped with a dual-motor electric powertrain, offering 577 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Test drives suggest the 6559-pound coupe can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. While this may not match the blistering pace of the Tesla Model S Plaid, Rolls-Royce prioritizes serene gliding over sheer speed. The adaptive suspension and extensive sound insulation contribute to a tranquil ride, barely disturbed by external noise until reaching higher speeds.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The Spectre features a 102.0-kWh battery, shared with the BMW i7, estimated to provide a range of up to 266 miles with 23-inch wheels, and up to 291 miles with 22-inch wheels. Standard DC fast-charging complements the expected home charging setups of Spectre owners.
