Rolls-Royce Commemorates An 116 Year Old Sales Record

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars announced its 2015 sales which were the second-highest ever recorded in its 112-year history. A total of 3,785 hand-built motor cars were commissioned by customers worldwide last year.
Brands such as Rolls-Royce have seen continued success, and have set sales records in 2019 owing to the Cullinan SUV sale. Last year saw the brand weather the Covid storm, and it has come back stronger than ever, with its first-quarter sales figures showing an increase of 62% over the same period in 2020.
The imposing British carmaker has achieved the highest first-quarter sales figures in its 116-year history. Within 3 months, the company delivered 1,380 cars, escalating the previous record set in 2019. Sales were boosted by strong performances of the Ghost and Cullinan in America, China, and the Asian Pacific market.
“Rolls-Royce Motor Cars made a strong start to 2021, reflected today in our first-quarter sales figures, which are the highest in our 116-year history. With robust order books across our product range, particularly for the new Ghost and Cullinan, sales growth in key markets, and bespoke commissions running at record levels, our business is in excellent shape. We have every reason to be optimistic for the remainder of 2021.” said Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Volkswagen AG took ownership of the Bentley name as well as previous Rolls Royce production facilities and previous Rolls Royce designs. In 2015, Rolls-Royce once again sold more cars in the
€200,000 net segment getting to an unparalleled position over the decade.
Muller-Otvos says of the company’s excellent results that ingenuousness, boldness, and precision for detail was the key to success: “Every member of our extraordinary team, at the home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and across the globe, has been crucial to delivering these remarkable results; their skills, talents, commitment, and enthusiasm make us who we are,” he concluded.
