There are no plans to produce direct replacements.

It was just a matter of time, but Rolls-Royce has announced the end of production for the Wraith and Dawn. This comes as no surprise. In April 2021, Rolls-Royce dropped the Dawn and Wraith from its US portfolio. Now, the company has revealed to Autocar that both models will be phased out of manufacturing in 2023, with no plans to develop direct replacements.

Torsten Müller-tvös, the company’s CEO, also told the publication that Rolls has already closed the order books for the two models. The final Wraith and Dawn are expected to leave the Rolls-Royce factory in early 2023, well ahead of the all-electric Spectre, which will arrive later that year. Müller-tvös also stated that the Spectre would take the place of the Wraith in the film.

This is the first step toward the brand’s goal of becoming an all-electric vehicle by the end of the decade.

Due to increasingly strict rules and the cars’ outdated base, the Rolls and Wraith left the US at the conclusion of the 2021 model year. The BMW 7 Series, which debuted in 2008, shares the same bones as the two. Their time had come to retire, but Rolls-Royce is forging ahead with electrification and the addition of the new Spectre to its range, leaving no immediate successors.

Apart from its aim to go all-electric by 2030, it’s uncertain what Rolls’ future holds. The company’s latest models, including the all-electric Spectre, are built on a new platform called Architecture of Luxury. The cancellation of the Wraith and Dawn will give Rolls more time to concentrate on electrifying the rest of its lineup, which should be easier now that the entire lineup is built on the same architecture.
