Rolls-Royce has achieved the highest annual sales in its 115-year history, with 4,107 cars delivered to customers in over 50 countries around the world in 2018, the company said in a press release on Friday.
In a year of multiple records, the company said it also enjoyed unprecedented demand for its bespoke creations, and launched the new Cullinan – the Rolls-Royce of SUVs – to international acclaim, the company said.
Reflecting on the company’s performance for the year, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: “2018 was a most successful, record-breaking year for Rolls-Royce. We have seen growth in all our regions around the world.
“At Rolls-Royce we are deeply focused on each and every one of our customers and are delivering on their demanding expectations. The Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood is acknowledged and celebrated as a global centre of luxury manufacturing excellence, where our skilled, dedicated team create the world’s finest, most sought-after luxury products. We set a formidable mark in 2018: I am confident it will prove the spur to even greater success in 2019.”
The Americas remained the company’s largest market in 2018. The company said sales also grew across all regions during the year with buoyant customer demand across the model range. Phantom was a major growth driver, flanked by the Wraith and Dawn models.
