Rolls-Royce still undecided on SUV plans
Plans to launch the first ever Rolls-Royce SUV in 2017 are put on ice as the company struggles to commit to production Rolls-Royce continues to work on proposals for an SUV but has still not signed off the project. “We’re looking seriously into it,” said the BMW Group board member for Rolls-Royce, Peter Schwarzenbauer. “Fifty per cent of cars sold around the world are now SUVs,” he added. “But there’s no decision yet. If we’re not totally convinced, we’re not going to do it. It’s got to look like a Rolls-Royce.” Schwarzenbauer added that the design proposals have got closer, but they’re not there at the moment. Originally, the company was expected to launch its long-awaited SUV model in 2017, one year later than the already-confirmed Bentley SUV.Priced at more than £200,000, the Rolls SUV would be aimed primarily at wealthy entrepreneurs in the Chinese market.Get the latest car news, reviews and galleries from Autocar direct to your inbox every week.
