Rolls-Royce Motor Cars reports record first quarter resultsGoodwood-based Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has delivered the highest-ever first quarter sales results in the marque's 116-year history in the first three months of 2021. Between 1 January and 31 March, the company delivered 1,380 motor cars to customers, up 62% on the same period in 2020 and surpassing the previous first quarter record set in 2019 — sales growth was seen in all markets, with the strongest in China, the USA and the Asia Pacific region.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO, said: “Rolls-Royce Motor Cars made a strong start to 2021, reflected 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 growing 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."

Demand for all Rolls-Royce models is extremely buoyant, particularly the new Ghost launched in 2020, and the luxury Cullinan SUV, with order books extending well into the second half of 2021.

Bespoke commissions remain at the record levels seen in 2020, with a number of outstanding individual examples already delivered this year, including the Koa Phantom and Iridescent Opulence Phantom. All 20 of the Phantom Tempus Collection cars have been allocated to customers worldwide.

Mr Müller-Ötvös added: “We have responded to recent challenges with our customary boldness, imagination and inventiveness, underpinned by meticulous planning and a relentless focus on our customers’ needs and requirements."
