Rolls-Royce Motor Cars recently celebrated the return of the Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 — codenamed 103EX — to the company’s home at Goodwood; this was the latest stop on a world tour for the marque’s experimental electric motor car, which includes a fully electric drive train and enhanced artificial intelligence. It presents the marque’s ‘uncompromised view’ of the future of luxury mobility.
Following its official unveiling at London’s Roundhouse in 2016, the car embarked on a global tour that has included appearances at customer and media events around the world (www.rolls-roycemotorcars.com
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said: “We are delighted to welcome 103EX home to Goodwood.
After almost four years on international duties, we felt it was time for the experimental model to return home.
It is a chance for those who worked on the project to relive some great memories, and for people who have joined us more recently to discover one of the most important cars we have ever built.
“As our first fully autonomous electric vehicle, 103EX was a huge statement of intent.
“In its technical innovation, it showed unequivocally that Rolls-Royce regards electric power as the future of automotive propulsion.
“It also demonstrated our radical vision of effortless, autonomous, connected, spacious and beautiful luxury mobility, with each car as individual as the customer.”
