During 2021, Rolls-Royce sold 5,586 cars around the world, an increase of 49% over the year before.
Sales of the German-owned luxury automobile increased by over 50% to 5,586 vehicles, setting new highs in most areas, including the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Greater China, as well as other nations across the world. Since Rolls-Royce Limited was founded in 1906, this is the highest volume recorded by the Goodwood company.
“2021 was a phenomenal year for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. We delivered more cars than at any time in the marque’s 117-year history with unprecedented demand for all products in every global market,” said Torsten Muller-Otvos, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO.
In the wake of the pandemic and the global shortage of semiconductor chips, Rolls-Royce wasn’t entirely immune. “I don’t think anyone would disagree with me that 2021 was the most volatile, unpredictable and challenging year for businesses across the globe,” Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Muller-Otvos said in a statement. However, he also noted that if one wants to bring home a Rolls-Royce, it may take quite some time. “If you order a Rolls-Royce today, you will expect to take delivery of it about a year from now.”
All through 2021, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the new-generation Ghost were the most popular models.
Rolls-record Royce’s sales results came only days after Bentley, another British company, claimed that last year was its greatest year ever. Clearly, the epidemic has had no impact on luxury goods sales.
