Rolls-Royce to build hybrid?
Technology that “will be essential in two years"
British luxury automobile maker Rolls-Royce is potentially adding hybrid cars to its portfolio in the future. In a report published by Auto Express, Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Otvos revealed that the company will probably start developing its first plug-in hybrid within three years, revealing that hybrid technology "will be essential in two years," something he highlighted might not be "from customer demand, but through legal regulation on emissions."
Rolls-Royce has previously experimented with models aside from gas, as it previously introduced an electric-car concept which received a lukewarm response. According to Müller-Otvos, a Rolls-Royce cannot come with any kind of compromise, and commenting on the earlier developed electric car, "both the recharging times and the range were not acceptable for our buyers."
