Rolls-Royce Silent Shadow EV On The Way?
Special To The Auto Channel From Auto Futures

According to reports, British luxury automobile maker Rolls-Royce is working on its very own electric vehicle.
Now owned by the BMW Group, Rolls-Royce could be developing a full-electric prototype, potentially based on the iconic Phantom or even a brand new addition to the model lineup.
As nothing has been officially announced by Rolls-Royce or BMW, we can only go on the circulating rumours. However, if true, the development will include new electric motors from the upcoming BMW i7, despite most likely being double the size.
Adding meat to the bone, the model could be named the ‘Silent Shadow,’ trademarked by Rolls-Royce early last year, and featuring a colossal 100 kWh battery which should easily exceed 300 miles on a single charge.
With the new BMW i7 to be officially revealed in 2022, we could see the first electric Rolls-Royce vehicle as soon as 2023.
