Rolls-Royce will leave Cullinan its single SUVJune 27, 2018
The company Rolls-Royce does not plan to expand the line of all-terrain vehicles and produce a model that in size would have been smaller than Cullinan. This is due to the position of the manufacturer to maintain the high status of the brand and not to increase sales by issuing cars in the lowest price segment. About this, with reference to the head of Rolls-Royce, Torsten Müller-Owos reports to Autocar.
“There will definitely not be such a car. The trends need to be followed, so I’m not saying that this will never happen, “said Müller-Otwos. “But now we have no plans for further expansion of the model range.”
The first crossover Rolls-Royce – Cullinan – debuted in May. The model is based on the so-called “Architecture of luxury” – a modular platform, already used on the sedan Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. Specially for Cullinan it was modernized: they developed a new front suspension with double wishbones, the chassis was supplemented with the all-wheel drive system and the steering wheels.
Under the hood of Rolls-Royce Cullinan there is a V12 engine with a volume of 6.75 liters. The twin-turbo unit produces 571 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The list of equipment Cullinan includes air suspension with adaptive shock absorbers, a system for selecting driving modes, a cupboard for drinks, a refrigerator and a glass partition separating the trunk from the passenger compartment.
