Rolls-Royce All Electric Spectre enters second phase testing on the French Riviera

Rolls-Royce is testing its new all-electric Spectre in its second phase on the French Riviera. Roll-Royce first showcased the 102EX in 2011, an all-electric concept based on the Phantom. Later, the carmaker showcased the 103EX. This led to customers wanting an electric drive train, resulting in the car maker announcing that from 2030 onwards, the brand will be an electric car brand.

In 2021, Rolls-Royce announced that they were testing an all-electric car named the Spectre, and to date, the Rolls-Royce Spectre will be tested for 2.5 million kilometres, an average of ~400 years of usage, says the carmaker.

Rolls-Royce started testing the Spectre in Arjeplog, Sweden, in extreme conditions. Over the past few months, the engineers have shifted to a more ‘everyday’ environment, testing the Rolls-Royce Spectre on the French Riviera. Of the 2.5 million kilometre testing, 6,25,000 kilometres will be driven on and around the French Côte d’Azur.

The testing will be split into two phases, the first on the Autodrome de Miramas proving ground, which has over 60 kilometres of closed routes and 20 test track environments. The Rolls-Royce Spectre will be tested on a 3.1-mile banked test track for continuous high-speed runs.

The second phase will be the Provençal countryside surrounding the Autodrome de Miramas, where many production Spectres will be driven following first customer deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2023. This provision for testing under local, real-life conditions is practised in key markets around the world.

Rolls-Royce claims that the Spectre is the most connected Rolls-Royce ever, with 141,200 sender-receiver relations and has more than 1,000 functions and more than 25,000 sub-functions. This is around three times more sender-receiver signals than a typical Rolls-Royce.
