Rolls Royce today unveiled its first electric car at the Geneva Motor Show.

The 102EX is heavily inspired by the Rolls Royce Phantom, and Torsten Muller-Otvos, Rolls Royce chief executive, said: “With this vehicle, we begin an exploration into alternative drive-trains, seeking clarity on which alternative technologies may be suitable to drive Rolls-Royce motor cars of the future.”

The car goes from 0-60 mph in less than eight seconds and has a top speed of 99 mph. It is powered by one of the largest batteries ever installed in a car and can run for 125 miles on a full charge.
