Rolls-Royce: we're building an SUV!

Rolls-Royce SUV confirmedRolls-Royce has confirmed it is developing an all-new SUV, taking the brand into the world of 4x4s for the first time in its 111-year history.

Chairman Peter Schwarzenbauer and chief executive Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes have written an open letter that officially discloses the “effortless… everywhere” new Rolls-Royce for the first time.

It will boast an all-new, all-aluminium architecture and combine Rolls-Royce luxury with the ability to cross any terrain. The ‘high-bodied car’ will “meet our customers’ highly mobile, contemporary lifestyle expectations,” says the firm.

“Many discerning customers have urged us to develop this new car – and we have listened.”

Design director Giles Taylor is thus now leading the creation of the new Rolls-Royce SUV; the firm hasn’t said when it will be launched, but does say “we will include our customers, enthusiasts and media along the way”.

Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes added: “I am proud to confirm that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is developing an all-new, high-bodied Rolls-Royce designed to satisfy the contemporary, highly mobile lifestyles of our discerning clients around the world.

“I am confident that this new Rolls-Royce will fully deliver on our brand’s promise of supreme luxury while at the same time being Effortless … Everywhere.”
