Rolls Royce Electric Limousine
A statement released by Rolls-Royce has announced that the legendary automaker is considering production of an electric-powered limo in the near future. A recent uptick in sales of its luxury vehicles, a remarkable 171 percent in challenging economic times, and the corresponding influx of capital has inspired Rolls to explore new technologies. While the company has made no official announcement regarding when a prototype could be ready, industry watchdogs speculate that the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London is the target date. It makes sense that the world-class automaker would seek out a world-class event for maximum marketing potential. BMW has already announced that the London Games will be the coming-out party for their new environmentally friendly class of luxury cars.
