CNN asked Rolls Royce
boss Ian Robertson about the company's green efforts today. At the Geneva Motor Show
, Robertson said the environment is on top of the agenda at Rolls, and gave as an example that Rolls has created "the most environmentally friendly car plant anywhere in the world
." Ian also talked about the use of aluminum frames in the company's cars and then said something I found very surprising. Ian claimed the Phantom
is "by far the class leader in the segment in terms of CO2
and the best MPG." Wah? The 9
MPG Phantom is a leader in the mid-sized class
of cars? Ian must mean another class of cars such as the "super luxury segment" he mentions in the interview.
