Sales last year advanced eight percent to a record 6,021 cars thanks to strong worldwide demand.


This was up from an all-time peak of 5,586 in 2021, the German-owned luxury carmaker said in a statement.

Orders for Spectre, its first all-electric car that launches later this year, beat expectations.


“2022 has been a momentous year for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars,” said chief executive Torsten Muller-Otvos.

“While we are not immune to global challenges and economic headwinds, thanks to our balanced worldwide sales strategy, we are cautiously optimistic that 2023 will be a strong year for Rolls-Royce.”

Founded at the beginning of the 20th century, the emblematic British car brand became part of German auto giant BMW in 1998. — AFP
