How many people do you think called their neighborhood Rolls Royce dealer and asked: “Do you have a plug-in Phantom?” Never mind. BMW-owned Rolls Royce shows one anyway at the Geneva Autoshow. Don’t worry, they don’t really mean it, it’s a prototype only.
According to Automobilwoche [sub], the nearly 20 foot long Phantom require a hard look to reveal its electric inner life. From the outside, there is only a Lucite Emily that glows in electric blue. Instead of a gas filler, there is an illuminated socket for the charger plug. That’s it.
Rolls Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös (now that’s a nice British name) didn’t want to tell Automobilwoche what’s under the hood (possibly nothing at all yet). He assured the German industry rag that the plug-in phantom will have “sufficient range” and will be “comfortable to drive.” That’s reassuring.
