2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre boasts impressive EPA range of up to 291 miles

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited, a British car brand renowned for crafting luxury and opulence on four wheels, has announced that its all-new, all-electric 2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre has achieved an impressive EPA-rated range of more than 290 miles on single charge. The all-electric 2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre is one of the heaviest EVs with a weight of 6,559 lbs (approx. 2,975 kg). Nevertheless, the base version of the luxury car (fitted with 22-inch wheels) boasts an impressive range of 291 miles on a single charge and a remarkable acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.

Notably, the recent revelation of the luxury car’s EPA-rated range has surpassed initial expectations by around 30 miles. This performance, while falling short of the preliminary WLTP rating of 323 miles (roughly 520 km) in Europe, still positions the Spectre as a formidable challenger in the luxury EV segment.

Rolls-Royce offers the Spectre in four different versions, each catering to different preferences and driving needs of the potential buyers. The one with 23-inch wheels boasts a driving range of 266 miles, while the Black Badge edition, which is available with both 22-inch and 23-inch wheels, offers driving ranges of 280 miles and 264 miles, respectively. While these figures underscore the new EV’s capabilities, it is worth noting that they don’t surpass the longest-range luxury models like Mercedes-Benz EQS and the Lucid Air.

Under the hood, the Spectre comes equipped with a 102-kWh battery pack, which is reportedly the same as that of the the BMW i7, given their commonalities in DC fast charging capabilities—up to 195 kW with a 10-80 per cent charging time of 34 minutes. The dual-motor, all-wheel-drive (AWD) powertrain, rated at 430 kilowatts and up to 900 Nm of torque, which propels the EV to aforementioned impressive acceleration time.

When it comes to energy consumption, the Rolls-Royce Spectre with 22-inch wheels consumes an estimated 81 MPGe or around 416-Wh per mile. The larger 23-inch wheels increase energy consumption by 9.3 per cent. While the Spectre doesn't claim the title of the longest-range luxury EV, its opulence, performance, and distinctive design carve an exclusive niche in the burgeoning high-end electric car market.

Positioned between the Cullinan and Phantom models, the 2024 Rolls-Royce Spectre is available with a starting price tag of $420,000 (plus a destination charge of $2,750), and reaches beyond $500,000 with optional features.
