“Suppose we find a battery technology that can offer ranges that are acceptable to our customers, I can definitely imagine a fully electric Rolls-Royce.”
Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes hinted that if battery technology improves, a fully-electric Rolls-Royce model could become reality. However, RR hasn’t made a final decision on producing an EV or even a plug-in hybrid car yet.
“One of the characteristics of Ferraris is the sound of the engine, and an electric car makes no sound.”
For that simple reason Ferrari CEO Amedeo Felis rules out the possibility of developing an all-electric car, he told reporters at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
“I have absolutely zero demand for a fully electric car for my customers.”
According to Seat CEO Jürgen Stackmann, we also won’t see an all-electric Seat in the foreseeable future. He says the manufacturer will look at pure EVs “in 2020 and beyond, because that is what the European Union wants [them] to do.”
