ROLLS-ROYCE SUPPLY COMPLETE ROUND THE WORLD

Phantom experiment with two 290 kW motors powered by batteries

It is concluded, with the return to the British base, the long test of the Rolls-Royce Phantom experimental electric motors: the luxury saloon into zero-emission configuration has indeed completed around the world. The purpose of the initiative was just to check the efficiency of the fuel system may be to start production in a few specimens of the luxury sedan that weighs almost 2700 kg.

Instead of the V12 engine of 6.7 liters of gasoline standard, the Phantom Experimental Electric is equipped with two electric motors of 145 kW each, with a total capacity of 290 kW, equivalent to 400 horsepower. The package of lithium batteries, which weighs 640 kg, was placed in the engine compartment normally occupied, while the two electrical units, transmission and transformers have been installed behind the rear seats, instead of the fuel tank.

This solution has not only allowed us to maintain a weight distribution evenly divided between the front and rear axles but it has not affected the habitability of what is considered a living room on wheels. As for performance, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Experimental Electric accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 8 "and has a top speed electronically limited to 160 km / h. The car has a complex three-phase charging system - it takes 8 hours - with a regenerative braking device and two selectable driving modes. With a standard wall outlet, the time to recharge the batteries up to 20 hours.
