Rolls-Royce has unveiled what will likely be its quietest car ever.

The Spectre is the brand's first all-electric model and is set to enter production late next year.

The coupe features rear-hinged "suicide" doors and a fastback body that resembles the Rolls-Royce Wraith's, but rides on a battery-powered version of the aluminum Architecture of Luxury platform that underpins the company's flagship Phantom and Cullinan SUV in internal combustion engine form.

Despite its two-door body style, it is longer than the Cullinan at 214 inches, but slightly shorter than the Phantom.

"Spectre possesses all the qualities that have secured the Rolls-Royce legend. This incredible motor car, conceived from the very beginning as our first fully-electric model, is silent, powerful and demonstrates how perfectly Rolls-Royce is suited to electrification," Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös said.

"Spectre’s all-electric powertrain will assure the marque’s sustained success and relevance while dramatically increasing the definition of each characteristic that makes a Rolls-Royce a Rolls-Royce."

Rolls-Royce has not revealed if the Spectre is rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, but said it has an estimated power output of 576 horsepower and will be able to accelerate to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

Its EPA rated range is expected to be approximately 260 miles between charges, based on internal testing.

Along with all the luxury appointments Rolls-Royce cars are known for, the Spectre will be available with a Starlight headliner and doors embedded with thousands of points of light.

When it arrives on the market, the Spectre will be competing with the just-revealed $300,000 Cadillac Celesitq electric car that is set to enter production at the same time.

Exact pricing has not been announced yet, but Rolls-Royce said the Spectre will slot between the Cullinan and Phantom, which would put it in the $400,000 range.
