Pardon my ignorance, but does Chandigarh have a lot of people with deep pockets? Is it due to sheer demand in Chandigarh the showroom is in Chandigarh or is it just a regional showroom?

Chandigarh is a massive market for high-end automobiles with cars as varied as an Audi R8, to a Ferrari and Lambo's and everything in between.

It makes sense for Rolls Royce to open a showroom in Chandigarh and I'm glad they're taking this step. Kudos to them!!

Good move, but if I am being honest, I would say rather than increasing the concentration of dealers in the North, a dealer in South (B'lore, Chennai or Cochin) would be more sensible.

I am sure these three states (KA,TN and KL) are bagging so many Rollers that a dedicated dealer wont hurt the brand. Its nearing 11 Ghosts in Kerala alone, I am not sure about the KA and TN figures.

Despite being termed as South, Hyd is almost as far away as Mumbai for Southies.

Chandigarh got Rolls Royce wow.

We should not forget that Chandigarh is center place for shopping for Punjab & half of Haryana and for sure large number of customers will be from Ludhiana , i remember to have seen Maybach 62 and couple of Bentley here plus Ever since Land Rover came to Punjab its great hit at Ludhiana.
