Growth expected in China, India; firm has no plans to add anymore Ghost variants to its range
11 June 2010

China is expected to overtake the UK as Rolls-Royce’s second biggest market, according to the firm’s new CEO.

Torsten Muller-Otvos told Autocar that he also expects to see a sharp increase in sales in India, but sales had died in Russia and show little sign of recovering.

When asked if the firm had any plans to offer any additional Ghost variants, Muller-Otvos denied this was the case.

Instead, he said the firm was aiming to ensure it could produce 3000 units of its four current models per year at ‘Swiss watch quality’ levels. Only then would the firm concentrate on expanding its model range.
