Following news that sales had fallen 26% in 2020, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd. announced on April 8 that the first quarter of 2021 went much better.

So far this year, Rolls-Royce has sold the most vehicles in the marque’s 116-year history, up 62% from the same period in 2020. The number of vehicles delivered globally, 1,380, also exceeds the brand’s previous record, set in 2019—and sets up the automaker for a bullish year even while the pandemic continues. “We have every reason to be optimistic for the remainder of 2021,” said Chief Executive Officer Torsten Müller-Otvös.
