In the end, the five batteries nestle where the engine and gearbox normally reside in a Phantom and have a 71kWh overall capacity. They can be charged via a normal domestic socket attached to the plug-in point on the rear right flank of the Rolls, though this takes up to 20 hours depending on the amount of charge left in the batteries. The lengthy time for charging a fully flat 102 EX is simply because of the size and power of the batteries. However, a three-phase charger can also be used to quicken up this process. Axeon has also developed a wireless induction charging system where the car is simply parked over a charging plate, so no need for wires or extension leads. It’s thought this would be the best solution for recharging the 102 EX at a dedicated parking space as Rolls-Royce owners are unlikely to want to get their hands dirty plugging in a charging lead.
