Convertible version of the Rolls-Royce Wraith officially confirmed

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 29, 2013

Rolls-Royce has just confirmed that it will offer a convertible version of the Wraith but still, do not expect it very soon as the new drophead coupe version could take some time. According to CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos, who talked with AutoExpress, the Wraith convertible will arrive in the next couple of years. Despite the rumors, Rolls-Royce is not considering making an SUV.

For those who don’t know, Bentley will offer an SUV based on the EXP 9F Concept, but it appears that Rolls-Royce will focus on the convertible version of the Wraith and the replacement for the Phantom.

The next-generation Rolls-Royce Phantom could also offer a plug-in hybrid powertrain as CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos said that “plug-in is definitely the direction to go in”.  Apparently Rolls-Royce wants to make this move because theirs cars must have the ability to pass legal requirements that could force people to drive their cars only in EV mode in city centres.
