With many car manufacturers planning to go all electric within the decade, we are bound to see many legacy combustion engine cars reach end of production. Rolls-Royce two door coupe, the Wraith and the Dawn are the latest vehicles to reach the end of the line.
In an interview, Rolls CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös confirmed that the order books for the two models have already been closed. The existing orders will continue to be delivered with the final Dawn and Wraith likely to roll off the Rolls assembly line in early 2023 and the all-electric Spectre arriving later that year.
The Dawn is a two-door convertible while the Wraith is a two-door coupé, the upcoming Spectre is a two door electric coupé vehicle which makes it a natural successor, its also bigger in size and more luxurious. Details about the Spectre are scarce for now, but the company has already revealed its redesigned the Spirit of Ecstasy. The outgoing Dawn and Wraith share their DNA with the aging BMW 7 Series that debuted in 2008 while the Spectre is rumored to share its parts with the BMW iX M60. The all-electric SUV crossover offers 610 horsepower (449 kilowatts) and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Newton-meters) of torque in Sport mode, such a setup would be amazing on a two door Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce plans to go all electric by 2030, they already have a new platform, Architecture of Luxury, that will form the basis of their EV’s including the Spectre. Discontinuing the Dawn and Wraith will allow the company to focus on the all electric transition.
