Silently cruising in a seemingly impregnable fortress of fine leather, sensuous wood and hand-built steel and glass is the ultimate goal of the hyper-luxury automakers like Rolls-Royce and Bentley, so it’s not surprising at all that an all-electric Rolls-Royce Phantom was trotted out in front of attendees at this week’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

The new 2011 Rolls-Royce ‘Experimental Electric’ 102EX prototype will test on public roads during the year, serving as a test bed to gather a bank of research data that will be crucial in informing future decisions on alternative drivetrains for Rolls-Royce. Some test markets will include Europe, the Middle-East, Asia and North America.
