Geneva 2011: Rolls-Royce 102EX [VIDEO]

Rolls-Royce 102EX prototype is driven by two electric motors that develop a combined 289bhp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Motivation to the motors comes from a a 71 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that offers a range of approximately 124 miles. 0-60mph comes in “under 8 seconds” and it has limited top speed of 99mph.

The battery can be charged in 20 hours with a single-phase charger or 8 hours with a three-phase charger. The prototype is also equipped with an induction charging system which allows for wireless recharging, when the car is parked on top of an induction pad and “power frequencies are magnetically” transferred to the battery.

The 102EX is visually identical to the standard Phantom, but a more experienced eye will spot the new Atlantic Chrome exterior with an illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, and a C-pillar charging port. Inside, the cabin features revised instrument cluster and a center console-mounted charging indicator.

The 102EX is purely an experimental vehicle and there are no production plans.
