Rolls-Royce is considering an SUV to take on Bentley

Article by Christian A., on September 17, 2013

Many of you folks know that the Bentley SUV already received the green light for production, while the Lamborghini SUV will arrive in 2017. These moves made by the Volkswagen Group and the sales registered by SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne are pressing other carmakers to enter this segment. The latest carmaker set to enter the SUV segment is Rolls-Royce.

According to Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes, the British carmaker owned by Bmw Group is intensively thinking about entering the SUV segment. If we will see an SUV from Rolls-Royces, this will definitely cost more than the Bentley SUV, which would be priced at around 180,000 euros ($240,000). The cheapest car currently found on the Rolls-Royce lineup is the Ghost and costs about 250,000 euros.

Still, Rolls-Royce is not the only manufacturer which is entering the SUV market, as Maserati will introduce the Levante in 2015, while Jaguar showed the C-X17 Concept at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Rolls-Royce CEO Mueller-Oetvoes also admitted that the SUV segment is very interesting and it has been incredibly stable during the crisis.
