Two years ago in 2016, Rolls-Royce presented the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 – codenamed 103EX – a futuristic vision of effortless, autonomous, connected, spacious, luxury mobility.
“When we revealed 103EX to the world in 2016, Rolls-Royce set the agenda for the future of luxury mobility. Since then it has become clear that other car brands have acknowledged our vision, so much so that they have adopted most aspects, apart from the most visionary and radical.” comments Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “Rolls-Royce’s vision in 2016 was, and remains, all-electric, completely autonomous, completely Bespoke mobility – coupled with ultimate luxury.”
The customer’s Personal Vision will dictate how their Rolls-Royce will look. This is an uncompromised view of the future of luxury mobility that also embraces the luxury customer’s wish for the Effortless Journey –autonomous travel in a completely connected, fully autonomous vehicle.
The chassis of the future, created from the most advanced materials and powered by a zero emissions powertrain will underpin this vision. Advanced manufacturing technologies will enable customers to involve themselves even more in the design of the shape, size and silhouette of their personal Rolls-Royce vision, which Rolls-Royce would then manufacture to the customer’s specifications.
This truth was reflected in the most dramatic aspect of the Rolls-Royce 103EX – the clamshell canopy and coach door. These stylish features allow the occupants to stand up from the best seat in the house, and descend from the futuristic lounge atmosphere of the cabin of 103EX clad in the finest silk, wool and wood.
