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

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.
