  • Here’s everything you need to know about Spectre, and how it competes with its rivals.
British luxury car maker Rolls Royce has launched its first all-electric luxury car, the Spectre in India, making it the most premium electric car available in the country. The car is also among the most premium electric cars available in the world.

The Rolls Royce Spectre is based on the company’s all-aluminium space frame dubbed as Architecture of Luxury, which underpins the company’s other premium offerings such as the Cullinan and Phantom.

Rolls Royce Spectre price in India

The Rolls Royce Spectre is priced starting at ₹7.5 crore ex-showroom in the country.

It has no direct rivals in India, with the next most expensive electric car, the Lotus Eletre priced starting at ₹2.55 crore ex-showroom.

However, it does have some distant rivals in the international market, such as the Cadillac Celestiq, Drako GTE and more. It is to be noted that this is a very niche market and the rivals are not priced closely.
