Driving the one-and-only electric Rolls-Royce

The Rolls-Royce 102EX is a fully electric plug-in version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The only one like it in the world, it was built to gauge customer response to the very idea of an electric ultra-luxury sedan.

There's no price on this car because, at least so far, it's for display purposes only. (A regular gasoline-powered Phantom costs at least $380,000.) When asked how much it cost to develop the 102EX, Rolls-Royce representatives would only say, "buckets."

Rolls-Royce provided an opportunity to drive the car during a New York City stop on its around-the-world tour.
