Rolls-Royce confirms plans to produce plug-in hybrid
Rolls-Royce has confirmed plans to build a plug-in hybrid models for the brand.
The company CEO Torsten M?ller-?tv?s said "The plug-in will be essential in two years, not so much by demand from customers, but because of the legal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions."
Nevertheless, there are still no plans for electric vehicles. In 2011, during the Geneva Motor Show, Rolls-Royce 102EX presented the prototype, a project that was canceled after time. The model had a lithium-ion battery of 71Kw, two electric motors that produce 389 horsepower and 800 lb.-ft. of torque. According to the company, the recharging time and range were unacceptable for buyers, but with hybrid technology that is no longer a problem.
