Rolls-Royce confirms Wraith Convertible, SUV not in the books image

The BMW-owned brand Rolls-Royce is planning to introduce a convertible version of the brand new Wraith, but the SUV has no chance of hitting the production line.

According to the British based automaker’s CEO, Torsten Muller-Otvos, the company is planning to produce a convertible version of the brand new Wraith Coupe. This is the good news, the bad news is that even if the carmaker has to chop down its top and reinforce its chassis, the operation will take a couple of years, so the model is expected to make its way onto the market sometimes in 2015.

Besides talking on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Convertible, the company’s official also said a few words on the SUV, but these have taken everyone by surprise. With the concept version expected to make its way onto several automotive events this year, in order to rival Bentley’s upcoming SUV, Rolls-Royce’s version will remain a simple idea, because the carmaker has no plans of putting it into production. Rolls-Royce will continue to focus on the Wraith Convertible and a new generation of the Phantom is also in the works. Speaking of the Phantom, Muller-Otvos said that this model will be out in at least three years from now and this might come with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
