Quelle Surprise | Roller owners uninterested in EV (Autopia)

Rolls-Royce EV Cancelled Due To Lack Of Customer Interest

The people have spoken, and they’re not interested in an electric Rolls-Royce.
Since its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Rolls-Royce has been traveling the world with its sole Rolls-Royce 102EX Phantom Experimental Electric, gauging how likely current Rolls-Royce owners would be to open their Burberry wallets for an EV adorned with the Spirit of Ecstasy.
Apparently, those folks told Rolls where they could plug it, as Motor Trend reported yesterday that the project has been cancelled. And so, the sole Rolls-Royce EV will forever wear the red badge that marks it as a prototype. Company officials always said that they’d build the 102EX only as long as their customers demanded it, and not a single one did.
