Rolls-Royce Phantom Electric teaser

Likely to be a one-off build, the fully-electric Phantom will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March. It will then tour the world throughout 2011 as a test bed for research data on possible future electrics from the company.

In addition, the announcement from Rolls also gives the car a name, as it was hitherto known only as the Phantom Experimental Electric. The company has also launched ElectricLuxury.com to showcase the new technologies.

And so ...

Very cool and we can't wait to see the full specs on this luxury electric when it debuts in just a couple of days!
