Rolls-Royce 102EX completes its world tour, company will reveal research in 2012

The Rolls-Royce 102EX (Phantom Experimental Electric) made its return to the home of the company in West Sussex, England this week following completion of its global test program.

Since being unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the 102EX underwent a tour around the world to find out whether an electrically powered Phantom could deliver a true Rolls-Royce experience.

The company said that it will reveal its market research findings in the first quarter of 2012.

Refresher: The Rolls-Royce Phantom 102EX is powered by a lithium ion battery pack and two electric motors mounted on the rear sub-frame. The two motors are connected to a single speed transmission with integrated differential. That helps it produce a total of 389-hp with a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft of torque. That allows the Rolls-Royce Phantom 102EX to go from 0 to 60 mph in under 8 seconds with a top speed of 99 mph. On a full-charge, the Rolls-Royce Phantom EE can travel up to 124 miles.
