The Spectre is the most expensive electric coupe on the market with a starting price of $413,000, though the figure can climb dramatically based on add-ons Rolls-Royce offers.

While the company has more testing and optimization to do before the Spectre launches on the market next year, preliminary data shows the two-door coupe can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in less than five seconds and has an all-electric range of about 320 miles. The first orders will be delivered in late 2023, Rolls-Royce said.

The Spectre is the company’s first electric vehicle, but Rolls-Royce plans for the entire fleet to be fully electric by 2030. In 2021, Rolls-Royce had a record year in terms of sales and production and sold 5,586 cars, a 49% increase compared to the previous year, the company said in January.
