China is the best mar­ket for Rolls Royce

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China was the largest mar­ket in 2013 for Bri­tish au­to­mo­tive com­pany Rolls-Royce Mo­tors Cars Ltd.

Last year, “China con­trib­uted 28 per­cent of Rolls-Royce’s global sales, mak­ing it the top mar­ket for us again,” said Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes.

The iconic UK brand de­liv­ered 3,630 cars to cus­tomers in more than 40 coun­tries in 2013, the fourth con­sec­u­tive record year and big­gest in its his­tory.

Strong year-on-year growth of 11 per­cent gave China the lead over a dis­tant-sec­ond United States, another pil­lar mar­ket for Rolls-Royce, for the sec­ond time in three years.

“China and the US re­main the most sig­nif­i­cant in­di­vid­ual mar­kets for Rolls-Royce, and we are con­fi­dent to see in­creases in the two mar­kets in 2014,” said Mueller-Oetvoes. (Photo 3)
