New Delhi, Sep 12: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd, a premium car maker owned by the BMW Group, on Friday, Sep 12 said it plans to sell 1,200 units globally by the end of this year.
''We had sold 1,010 units in the last year and this year, we hope to surpass the number and sell 1,200 units globally,'' Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd Director (Sales and Marketing) Graeme Grieve told reporters at the launch of the company's first showroom in the capital. This is its second showroom in the country after Mumbai. The company, which had sold 12 units last fiscal, is targeting to sell round about 20 units this year. ''We are looking to sell round about 16-20 units this year but the number may also increase if the demand increases,'' Mr Grieve said.
Rolls-Royce has an annual production capacity of 1,000 units which it plans to increase significantly with the starting of the second production line and also hire 200 more people to cater to the growing demands.
''Presently, we have a headcount of 500 peole but we will be increasing that number and hire 200 people in the next two years to attend to our growing needs,'' he added.
With a new model and a new dealership, Rolls-Royce is looking at sales growing 25-40 per cent per year over the next four to five years.
