Rolls Royce To 'Rolls Out' A 2010 Electric Car

November 23, 2009


Sorry, I'm still chuckling about how funny the title I came up with was. With isn't it all. And that, I think we can all agree, is (the new) testament of my awesome. Anyway, Rolls Royce, a company best known for me owning like two die-cast models of their cars its soul, is releasing an electric version of the Phantom sometime next year.

Last year Rolls-Royce CEO Tom Purves hinted that the luxury automaker might introduce an electric car, but now a source inside the company has confirmed that an electric version of their flagship Phantom is planned for late 2010. This will give them plenty of time before the 2012 London Olympics to get things rolling.

No word yet on cost, but expect it to be somewhat more than the current gas powered version's $380,000 price tag.

I've got news for you, Richy Rich: if you're actually considering dropping $400K+ on a car, you should hire me. This isn't a joke, I'm being 100% serious. HIRE ME. Two words: Piggyback rides!
