The Black Badge Ghost isn’t electric, but it drives like a Rolls-Royce love letter to EVs

Rolls-Royce has long proclaimed its cars are the benchmark for luxury, but the new Black Badge Ghost feels like a yardstick for electric luxury, too.

All the same, while we wait for Spectre, Rolls-Royce's first EV, I can't escape the feeling that its charms are already hiding in plain sight.

2022 BMW i4 First Drive

BMW enjoys a challenge. How else to explain the 2022 i4, the German automaker’s first attempt at an all-electric car that focuses on driving dynamics above all else.

2022 BMW iX First Drive

German automaker BMW is making up for lost time by launching two all-electric vehicles simultaneously: the 2022 iX electric SUV and i4 Gran Coupe. Both ride on BMW's all-new Cluster Architecture or CLAR platform, a custom chassis that blends together a modern mix of steel, aluminum, and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) to live up to the thoroughly-modern EV drivetrain. The result, BMW insists, is that blend of comfort and sportiness we've come to expect from vehicles sporting the Bavarian propeller badge, only now with zero emissions.

The Rolls-Royce Black Badge Ghost is payoff from a high-stakes luxury gamble

Back when Rolls-Royce unveiled the Ghost last year, it described the luxury sedan as "Post Opulent" design. Now, it's giving the V12 car a sinister twist.

2021 BMW M440i Convertible Review

2021 BMW M440i Convertible Review

I could spend twelve paragraphs talking about BMW's grille-of-the-moment, but it all really boils down to whether or not you like the 2021 M440i Convertible's outsized snout and - should you not - if the fact you don't see it while you're driving is sufficient aesthetic distance. Time has blunted some of the shock & awe of the 4-Series' fascia, though I still think it's easier to stomach in darker forms as on the M4.
