Rolls-Royce used to sell its cars with a tagline that bragged about the lack of cabin noise, with only the ticking of the in-cabin clock to be heard during your ride.

Now, that tagline is somewhat moot, as the all-electric 102EX, unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show, is for all intents and purposes silent thanks to its fully electric drivetrain. While Rolls insists this is a one-off vehicle intended for evaluation, they also stated that they recognize the necessity of exploring alternative powertrain solutions, and with its lack of noise, torquey power delivery and the lack of real driving distance required for their car means that an EV might be a nice fit for Rolls-Royce in the future.
