British luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has today announced that it has further strengthened its dealer network in Russia and Switzerland.
The company has opened a new sales and service facility in Nyon near Geneva.
James Crichton, recently appointed Regional Director Rolls-Royce Motor Cars for Europe, said “With the two dealerships, by Lake Zurich and now at the shores of Lake Léman we are confident of strengthening our position as the leading luxury brand in Switzerland.”
On the same time, Rolls Royce said Avilon in Moscow has been authorised as the second dealership in the Russian capital.
Andrey Pavlovich, CEO of Avilon, commented: “Rolls-Royce embodies luxury like no other brand, and the motor cars proudly carrying the Spirit of Ecstasy are the ultimate symbol of success. I look forward to exceeding the expectations of the world’s most discerning customers. The team will be led by Anastasia Zbarskaya, General Manager for the Avilon Rolls-Royce business, who has a wealth of experience in the luxury segment.”
The manufacturer, which employs more than 1,000 workers at Coventry’s Ansty Park, sold 3,538 cars worldwide last year, which is 30 per cent more than in 2010.
The latest figures, which were revealed last month, are more than the previous record year of 1978 when sales hit 3,347.
Last year Rolls-Royce started work on expanding its manufacturing plant at Goodwood in West Sussex.
The successful year comes as the British car industry is showing promising signs.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders revealed car production rose 42 percent in May to 141,146, its highest level since 2004.
