Rolls-Royce 102EX 1Werner Zagler has no illusions: “The average is not interested in Rolls-Royce customer, so much for technology,” says the developer. Although the days are gone, was reported as the horsepower of a Rolls with only “sufficient”, but my lord and my lady are rather on the color of the leather or the grain of the wood root curious as to engine and transmission. That in the engine room enough coal for propulsion befitting stand is ready for the customer as obvious as the abundance of its own on the same account. Leaving enough leisure to feel for the maroon-leather Corinova and to rejoice over the shimmering metallic studs. The drive can be experienced rather incidentally.Rolls-Royce 102EX 2If one pulls the lever on the steering wheel on D, the car made out of complete stillness in motion. The ride is as packed in cotton wool. If you would like to hear an electrical hum, you have already issued the air and give up an empty road with no traffic noise from the state of full throttle. The Rolls pushes in just under eight seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. In normal traffic is not the slightest bit electro sound passes through the double glazed windows. Even at the maximum speed of 160 km / h the car will remain stoically calm and composed as a British butler with 50 yearsRolls-Royce 102EX engineWhen the throttle and brakes to win the Rolls back battery power. With a push of a button on the steering wheel can strengthen this regeneration. The battery has a capacity of 71 kWh, which is more than three times as much as with most electric cars. Says “We use them but only 56 kWh,” Rolls-Royce developer Stephen C. Schmidt. “A full charge down to the last point would require too much energy, a discharge in turn could damage the battery,” explains the physicist. With a battery life of 30 percent will switch the system into a reduced mode at 20 percent does not drive the car any further. The range in practice is nearly 190 kilometers. Loaded is possible via plug, but also a wireless induction charging: It rolls on the loading place so far in front, until a light comes on in the center console. The filling process happens automatically.Rolls-Royce 102EX 3The driver does not even take off the white gloves. 230 customers have the luxury brand of electrified single piece 102EX already gone around the globe trial – in Beijing, Singapore, Paris or Geneva. Alone whose opinion is decisive for the British, whether a tramp with the “Spirit of Ecstasy” on the hood is conceivable at all. “The driving concept for future models must be an authentic Rolls-Royce can experience. There must be a technology that is sound both from the perspective of our customers and the brand and we’re looking for long-term future sets up,” says Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös – and includes a production version of 102EX categorically. Until the first of the British electricity, if there will ever be one, so it might take many years.Rolls-Royce 102EX 4The famous hood ornament light up when in a delicate shade of blue by the way 102EX. That and the small loading door on the right C-pillar are the only outward sign of the unusual power of the 5.8 meter long luxury cruiser, whose full title “Experimental Electric Phantom” is. The car has two electric motors driving a common gearbox, the rear axle and provide a total of 290 kW (394 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. The 102EX also has more power than a standard phantom with 460-hp V12 engine. The force needs the battery-powered battleship but also because of the tremendous force from 96 donors nickel-cobalt-manganese cells – a special form of lithium-ion cell with very high power density – weighs almost as much as a small car. The 640-pound battery pack is deep under the bonnet crowned, three box-shaped chargers.Rolls-Royce 102EX 5A total of 2.7 tons brings the Rolls on the scale. The Rolls is a pure electro-house development, also ascends when the parent company BMW in terms of electrical mobility, just big. There had been merely a “casual exchange office boundaries,” said Stephan C. Schmidt. Contact with the BMW engineers would be close if the British luxury brand at some point the mass production of streamers into account moves. The customers at the tests are, it reports the developers, after all pleasantly surprised by the ride was. Potential buyers should have been given as yet. Except for one: Using the 102EX would like to purchase an exotic piece for his car collection.Rolls-Royce 102EX 6
