Report: Rolls-Royce seriously considering production SUV to rival Bentley

Rolls-Royce has been rumored to be working on a new SUV amidst direct rival Bentley’s decision to produce one. That said, a new report has surfaced from AutoCarUK, who has learned that the SUV is becoming more of a reality.

After speaking with the company’s boss, Torsten Muller-Otvos, the chief reported confirmed that the idea is underway for consideration.

“For me, it is less of a question of whether we should do it — the segment is interesting, growing and stable even in times of economic crisis — as opposed to one of whether it fits with the image and brand of Rolls-Royce,” Müller-Ötvös told the outlet. “What I can say is that we are currently investigating whether Rolls-Royce can carry such a vehicle.”

Originally, Rolls-Royce didn’t see any potential to make such a vehicle, so when Bentley announced to be in the works with theirs, Rolls-Royce dismissed it. But then over time, the automaker realized that potential exists.

The new SUV will most likely based on Rolls-Royce’s new platform for the next generation Phantom and could carry a price of more than £250,000.
