Report: Rolls-Royce CEO confirms development of SUV crossover

Rolls-Royce has been known to be working on a new SUV crossover now that Bentley is working on their own. Additionally, SUV crossovers are high on the demand, which further bolsters both Bentley’s and Rolls’ venture into the segment, despite being rather blasphemous to the brand’s image.

And after speaking with Rolls’ CEO, Törsten Müller-Ötvös, AutoGuide heard from the man himself of confirmation for Rolls’ interest in a crossover. However, Müller-Ötvös also said that the model has yet to be approved for production. That means the model is most likely in the research and development phase.

Interest is high among Rolls’ own executive brand and their customers, especially considering the fact that majority of Rolls-Royce owners own a Land Rover. Should the Rolls-Royce crossover hit production, its parts will come from the same bin as the new X7 and the next-generation 7-Series while using the same platform.
