“A diesel has a lot of low-end torque,” a source told AutoCar. “But customers are not going to cop it. It’s the perception of compromise. They wouldn’t entertain the idea. They said absolutely not, don’t bring diesel anywhere near a Rolls-Royce, we won’t buy it.”

Rolls-Royce also said that it has no plans to offer an SUV to it customers like Bentley, Lamborghini and Aston Martin.

“We can’t imagine a Rolls-Royce SUV,” the insider said. “It’s not something we are actively considering at all. We don’t chase volume, so we’re not looking for a volume creator.”
