Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has announced that it recorded unprecedented level of sales in 2019, with a global performance unequalled in the company’s 116-year history.
According to Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a total of 5,152 cars were delivered last year to customers in over 50 countries, an increase of 25% on the previous high set in 2018.
With these historic results, Rolls-Royce continues to make a meaningful contribution to the overall performance of its shareholder, BMW Group.
“This performance is 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 a growth of 25% 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. The dedication and determination of our exceptional team at the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood and around the world is part of our success,” Müller-Ötvös said.
Meanwhile, the car company disclosed that it recorded growth in sales across all regions during the year, which was driven by strong customer demand for all Rolls Royce models.
However, North America retained top status with one-third of the car maker’s global sales followed by China and Europe.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, through a global network of 135 dealerships sold in more than 50 countries, and as part of its long-term commitment to sustainable growth, the company announced two new dealerships Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Brisbane and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Shanghai Pudong.
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is expected to launch later in the year a flagship dealership in London, which would double the size of the previous location.
