The future of luxury mobility Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100

The Vision Next 100 has to be the most extreme concept ever built by Rolls-Royce since its founding in 1906. This exploration of an autonomous vehicle is perhaps most interesting for the design, and its clear inspiration from the most beautiful cars of the 1930s, while looking completely at home in the 2030s and beyond. Luggage storage is pleasantly retro as well, with two grand tourer cases that open up from a slot behind the floating front fender, where the engine would normally be.

Earlier, group mate BMW showed with a study model of the same name what it has in store for the future consumer. After the BMW Vision Next 100, the BMW group is today introducing the Rolls-Royce of the future to us.

In addition to the Vision Next 100 title in ALL CAPS, this concept has been given the name 103 EX in the tradition of the British brand (there were already the 101EX and 102EX). The more things change, the more they stay the same. Rolls Royce therefore wants to stick to the ideas of Sir Henry Royce.

Because the idea of ​​the Vision Next concepts lies more in sketching a picture of the future than in presenting concrete models to be introduced, it is very questionable what we will eventually see in return.

Looking towards the next 100 years, each and every Rolls-Royce will be a unique work of art. Shape, size and silhouette – you will be able to craft your vision entirely from the wheels up.

If it is up to Rolls-Royce, it is mainly due to the clientele of the brand. In the future, the brand mainly wants to work towards a much higher degree of personalization. The time of unique carriages will definitely be back in the future, according to Rolls Royce.

This 5.9 meter long Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 is more a spa than a car. The future vision of the British luxury brand is completely autonomous and has a ‘Virtual Assistant’ on board, named Eleanor. A nice hint to the past, because actress Eleanor Thornton once modeled for The Spirit of Ecstasy, the well-known image at the front of every Rolls-Royce. Yet it is not the only hint to the past, because the brand believes that personalization will continue much further in the coming years. There must be unique bodies, just like in the times when coachbuilders made unique ones.

The only thing the cars are going to share is the lightweight platform. Furthermore, each car will be assembled by hand and made completely to the customer’s wishes, both in terms of design and equipment. This even means that the customer can determine how long the car should be, because the wheelbase is also completely as desired. It always has a powerful electric powertrain.

No driver’s seat or steering wheel, but a two-seater sofa and a huge OLED screen across the entire width of the car. You also no longer do boarding with a doorman. No, the whole car folds open so you can walk in and take a seat. At the same time, you can make a large entrance by opening the entire car. This is supported by LED lamps, which project a kind of red carpet on the ground.

The personal assistant Eleanor is given a form of artificial intelligence. For example, it remembers the favorite routes, but also the taste of the passenger. This way the system knows exactly to which restaurant or gallery the car should be sent.

In the future, your luggage will no longer be in the trunk, but it will be neatly tucked behind a compartment in the side. Unload yourself? No, the car can do it itself, as Rolls-Royce puts it, ‘hand it to the doorman’.

Rolls-Royce sees a future for coachbuilding (again) and wants to be able to work out a concept proposed by the buyer in the form of a completely unique coach.
