Spectre EV 12 - Rolls-Royce Spectre EV enter second phase of testing in the French Riviera

Rolls-Royce continues to test the EV to perfect its first vehicle ahead of next year’s launch.

Previously Rolls-Royce tested the Spectre EV in extreme temperatures near the Arctic circle in Arjeplog, Sweden. The Specter EV has now entered its second development phase on the French Riviera.

The second phase of this development was carried out to see the use of the Spectre EV for daily mobility purposes. In this test, the Spectre has covered a route of 625,000 kilometers (388,356 miles), as part of the car’s 2.5m-kilometer (1.55m-mile) global session.

This phase is divided into two parts, the first at the Autodrome de Miramas test site and the second taking place in the countryside surrounding the facility. Rolls-Royce says many of their users are from the region, which is why 55 percent of the testing is done here.

“It is no exaggeration to a state that Spectre is the most anticipated Rolls-Royce ever. Free from the restrictions connected to the internal combustion engine, our - will offer the purest expression of the Rolls-Royce experience in the marque’s 118-year history.

This latest testing phase proves a suite of advanced technologies that underpins a symbolic shift for Rolls-Royce as it progresses towards a bright, bold, all-electric future. This will secure the ongoing relevance of our brand for generations to come.” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, chief executive officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Car
