The 102 EX Concept Car also known as Rolls-Royce Phantom EE (Experimental Electric) is powered by a lithium ion battery pack and two electric motors mounted on the rear sub-frame. The two motors of the vehicle, connected to a single speed transmission with integrated differential generate up to 389-hp and help the Phanton 102EX to reach 60 mph in under 8 seconds. The Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom top speed is 99mph and on a full charge it can cover 124 miles.
Regarding the design, the manufacturer said: “102EX bears the famous hallmarks of the Rolls-Royce Phantom on which it is based, such as hand craftsmanship, fine detailing and iconic design cues like the pantheon grille and the Spirit of Ecstasy which celebrates its centenary in 2011. However, at the core of its design is the essence of an experimental vehicle, establishing this car’s status as a test bed, while subtly alluding to its electric power plant.”
