Rolls-Royce sold over 4,000 cars for the first time in its 111-year history last year, as its CEO told CNBC it would decide whether to release an SUV this year.
The BMW-owned carmaker, known for its iconic Phantom model, posted its fifth consecutive year of record sales on Tuesday, having delivered 4,063 cars to customers in 2014 -- a rise of 12 percent from the year before.
Sales in Europe grew 40 percent, while North America and the Middle East saw a 30 percent and 20 percent rise in sales respectively. Sales were driven by the Ghost Series II, which was launched in November, the Wraith, and the British company's flagship Phantom model.
And while the sales of its classic models continue to thrive, the boss of the car manufacturer told CNBC that the company was still decided whether to release an SUV.
