Rolls-Royce sets 116-year record

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has reported its best global sales year in its 116-year history.

It delivered 5,152 to customers in over 50 countries around the world, an increase of 25 per cent on the previous high set in 2018.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “This performance is of an altogether different magnitude to any previous year’s sales success. While we celebrate these remarkable results we are conscious of our key promise to our customers, to keep our brand rare and exclusive. We are pleased and proud to have delivered growth of 25 per cent in 2019.

“Worldwide demand last year for our Cullinan SUV has driven this success and is expected to stabilise in 2020. It is a ringing testament to the quality and integrity of our products, the faith and passion of our customers and, above all, the skill, dedication and determination of our exceptional team at the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and around the world and our dedicated global dealer network.”
