The electrification of the vehicles are getting more and more common, and the next will be Rolls-Royce. The British is still testing their first all-electric vehicle, the Spectre Coupe this time they have revealed their winter testing. The launch of this vehicle is expected to be during 2023, so they still have, at least, one year to keep testing the vehicle.
The most important information that this trial has revealed is that the all-new Spectre has successfully completed its winter testing regimen, in the remote Swedish forests of Arjeplog, specifically on the frozen surface of Lake Kakel, where seemingly every carmaker on Earth have tested for decades, and a place where the weather can be down to -40 degrees (Fahrenheit and Celsius), so it means this car can support a very cold temperature and keep working.
The brand has said that “By driving on low traction surfaces such as snow and ice and will fully destabilizing Spectre, the engineers can create dynamic circumstances at low speeds that would ordinarily occur at high speeds. De-escalated time enables engineers to create unparalleled detail in the motor car’s response, in doing so schooling Spectre to think, behave and communicate like a Rolls-Royce worthy of the marque. Following more than half a million kilometres (310,000 miles) of testing, 25% of this process has now been completed.”
The next goal of testing was the integration of Rolls-Royce’s first electric powertrain into its unique architecture. Rolls calls this process “Rolls-Royce 3.0.”, this process involves more digital intelligence than any Rolls yet made, as they said “Spectre is the most connected Rolls-Royce ever, and each component within it is more intelligent than in any previous Rolls-Royce. It features 141,200 sender-receiver relations and has more than 1,000 functions with more than 25,000 sub functions. By comparison, Phantom has 51,000 sender-receiver relations, 456 functions and 647 sub functions”.
They has still 1.24 million miles of testing to go until they have planned to launch it, so the fans have to wait, unless, one more year until have this all-electric vehicle and could drive it.
