With the first Rolls-Royce electric vehicle (EV), the Spectre, set to begin deliveries in 2023, CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös is emphasizing the company’s commitment to making the upcoming EV just as luxurious as its other vehicles.

Rolls-Royce head Torsten Müller-Ötvös said the company “would never compromise” what it’s like to drive a Rolls-Royce, in an interview with Yahoo Finance shared on Tuesday.

Regarding the Spectre EV, Müller-Ötvös said, “It needs to be a true, perfect Rolls-Royce, and then number two comes electrification.” Müller-Ötvös continued, “We’d never compromise the experience of what a Rolls-Royce stands for, just for the pure sake that we have a different drivetrain.”

The CEO has been with the BMW-owned company for 12 years, and he also explained that the average age for buyers of Rolls-Royce vehicles has dropped from 56 to 43 in that time – marking major growth in the company’s younger customer base.

Müller-Ötvös also addressed that Rolls-Royce deliveries take about a year from the point of being ordered, not unlike many customers had experienced with EV automaker Tesla’s most-coveted vehicles.

On Monday, Rolls-Royce parent company BMW also announced plans to double its all-electric vehicle deliveries to 200,000 in 2022, coinciding with the release of four new EVs over the next couple of years that will join the iX and i4 EVs.
