Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has delivered its highest-ever Q1 sales results in its 116-year history in the first three months of 2021. Can you believe it?
Let’s get this right. 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.
And this is not just here in the UK we’re talking about. Sales growth was seen in all markets, with the strongest in China, US and Asia Pacific.
It’s astounding that, at a time of pandemic, the world’s poshest (and most famous and fabulous) cars sell more and more and more. We can’t get our head around it. Not that it’s a bad thing, not at all. It’s just astounding.
What else can we say about this. It is what it is. The facts speak for themselves. It’s amazing.
No wonder CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös always looks happy. He says:
“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 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.”
