If that’s the case the future might take some getting used to, at least aesthetically, but it’s the technology presented within that represents the British luxury brand’s true look at the future, with a fully autonomous, zero-emissions luxury vehicle.
One could argue Rolls-Royce has already previewed both in the past – electric mobility with the Phantom-based 102EX and autonomy because… well, how many owners also drive their own Rolls-Royce?
But as one of the BMW Group’s Next 100 Years projects, the 103EX pushes boundaries further than Rolls-Royce has ever attempted before.
The key, says Rolls-Royce, is in epitomising four key tenets of the future of luxury mobility: ‘The Personal Vision’, ‘The Effortless Journey’, ‘The Grand Sanctuary’ and ‘The Grand Arrival’. There’s more than a hint of the concept of early luxury rail or air travel in there, we think.
‘The Personal Vision’ is represented by the coachbuilt nature of the car. An advanced chassis, a zero-emissions powertrain and a bespoke design tailored to every individual customer are all part of the concept. The firm’s Director of Design, Giles Taylor, has designed this particular concept. Love or loathe it, one assumes it’s merely one of many potential body styles you could drape over the chassis of the future. Read more »
