Earlier last year, the British luxury automaker Rolls-Royce launched its first-ever all-electric car, the Spectre. The brand-new Spectre EV is a fully electric hardtop two-door saloon that has now made its way to India as well. The first Rolls-Royce Spectre was recently delivered in Chennai, and the pictures of this sedan have been shared online. Although the company has not officially launched the vehicle in India, it has delivered the first unit. The Rolls-Royce Spectre has been priced at Rs 9 crore (ex-showroom).
Rolls-Royce Spectre in Chennai
The pictures of India’s first Rolls-Royce Spectre have been shared on Instagram by Automobili Ardent on their official page. The pictures show the brand-new Rolls-Royce Spectre coming out of an enclosed trailer in a garden. The first picture shows the sleek slant back roof design of the Spectre. The next picture showcases the vehicle with its bonnet and right front door open. Lastly, a third picture shows the Spectre inside the enclosed trailer.
Just a few days later, another picture of the same car was also shared by Automobili Ardent. In that picture, the sedan was shown with straps on its front door, suggesting that the vehicle has landed via a cargo plane in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Presently, we do not have any information on who actually has bought this all-electric hardtop sedan. Most likely, we can expect to see a few more Spectres in India in the coming months. It has been reported that the company will officially be launching the Spectre next year in 2024.
