The Rolls-Royce Spectre is the first-ever electric car from the company Rolls-Royce Motor Cars which is set for global recognition for its EV venture. With its new coupe, the renowned automaker is tapping into the EV market. The Spectre will contest with Tesla in essence and carry punch and class as expected from the iconic brand. Let’s find out its expected price in Nepal and more on its nitty-gritty details.
The Rolls-Royce Spectre is the first-ever electric car manufactured by the iconic English automaker Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The Phantom sedan and Cullinan SUV inspire this luxury EV however, it’s a fully-electric machine with two electric motors capable of a combined 577 horsepower.
The car is estimated to give 291 miles of range per a full charge which equals just above 468 kilometers. Therefore, it’s not among the highest of the lot in terms of offering longer ranges, but it’s not bad either. Let’s get to know all about this mind-boggling machine including its expected availability and price in Nepal.
Rolls Royce says that it will discontinue gasoline-powered vehicles by 2030 meaning it will only issue EVs in the future post 2030.
Power, and Performance
The Rolls-Royce Spectre comes with a dual-motor powertrain with 577 bhp horsepower. The luxury EV is equipped with 664 lb-ft of torque. Earlier real-life tests have indicated that it can reach 96.56 kmh in around 4 seconds. In comparison, its competitor Tesla Model S Plaid can cruise at the same speed in 2 seconds. But the Rolls-Royce cars are never about sheer speed class.
The adaptive suspension on the car relieves the ride over bumps while the cabin is made quietly peaceful by using sound-numbing material. These features lead to a peaceful and relaxing ride on the world’s one of the most sought-after luxury cars.
The interior inside the Rolls-Royce Spectre offers the space for four with bucket seats in both rows. The EV deviates from its traditional fuel-powered vehicles in features. Besides the signature night headliner, the door panels on the Spectre sport tiny LED lights.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The Rolls-Royce Spectre features a touchscreen infotainment system on its dashboard along with a digital gauge display. There’s also a Bespoke Audio stereo system and aluminum speaker grilles. The entire setup rightly camouflages with the inside of the Spectre.
Range and Battery
The Spectre comes with a 102.0-kWh battery. If it’s paired with 23-inch wheels, the EV can deliver up to 266 miles (428.086 km) on one full charge. On the other hand, the 22-inch wheels raised this range to 291 miles (468.31 km) per charge. The company claims a 530-kilometer range but that is dictated by riding style and the types of roads you ply it on. The DC charging is a standard one but with more charging stations available these days, the cautious riders won’t suffer or have to from having to queue up in long lines to juice up its battery pack.
There are plenty of safety features for the driver. For eg automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, etc. In the meantime, the Spectre comes with a four-year warranty and maintenance package. This includes a powertrain warranty as well but with unlimited miles trade-in.

Rolls-Royce Spectre Price in Nepal and Availability
The Rolls-Royce Spectre cost starts at $422,750 so it should be around Rs 4.60 crore in Nepal. And that makes it quite a lot more expensive than its Ghost model. It’s obvious that this icon is not for mere mortals who want a ride for a daily commute. But for those for whom money ain’t no big deal and want a class-apart electric vehicle, the Rolls-Royce Spectre is the next-generation choice.
In terms of availability, there is no guarantee that the Spectre will be available in Nepal however, in terms of the cost, the estimate would give you a hint of its beefy investment. The vehicle is already available for delivery to the global market from late 2023.
