Rolls-Royce has been teasing its first electric vehicle (EV), the Spectre, since announcing it in September 2021, sharing photos of it sporting the typical camouflage.

On Tuesday the company finally took the wraps off the Spectre at a special event at Rolls-Royce headquarter in Goodwood, England, and as expected it lives up to the Rolls-Royce name in its specs, especially its expected price.

The specs are still estimates, but the Spectre EV is expected to weigh in at an impressive 6,000lb thanks in part to its luxurious interior, which will feature plush leather seats and trims, wood veneers, and lambswool carpeting.

Despite its hefty weight can reach 60mph in 4.4 seconds thanks to a peak output of 577 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque from its electric motors. No information on the size of the battery was revealed, but given its weight and expected range of 260 miles (418km), it will likely be north of 100kWh.

Rolls-Royce also didn’t reveal the price for the Spectre EV, except to say that it will be priced between the Cullinan (~$350,000 USD) and the Phantom (~$460,000 USD), meaning a price near $400,000 is likely.

Production of the Spectre EV is expected to begin next year with Rolls-Royce planning to make the first deliveries in late 2023.

The Spectre will kick off their transition to being an all-electric car maker by 2030. As part of that transition the luxury car maker has even redesigned its iconic ‘Spirit of Ecstacy’ to give it a more aerodynamic look.
