SHANGHAI: Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce expects to achieve double-digit sales growth in China this year, although it will be lower than the 40 per cent rate it saw in 2018, its chief executive said on Tuesday (Apr 16)..

Torsten Muller-Otvos made the comments to Reuters in an interview on the sidelines of the Shanghai Autoshow.

"We are well set up for again quite a good growth rate in 2019. We definitely see double-digit growth," said the boss of the BMW-owned Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

He said growth would, however, unlikely reach the same level as last year. "I don't think so. That would be a little bit too much," he said.
