Bentley Motors Limited Key Developments

Bentley to Launch Coupe Version of New SUV

Bentley, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG is likely to launch a coupe version of its new Bentayga SUV. The new model is likely to be a coupe-like counterpart to the Bentayga. Additional options to the Bentayga range are unlikely to arrive until around 2019.

Bentley Launches Mulsanne Majestic in Middle East

Bentley, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG is launching its Mulsanne Majestic in the Middle East. The model was launched by Al Wajba Motors. It is limited to 15 models, with five for the Qatar market, five cars going to Saudi Arabia and five to the United Arab Emirates. The vehicle is equipped with the automaker's 63/4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. It features an Ivory exterior with a single fine line in Saddle to compliment the car's neutral tone, an interior with Magnolia seats, seat belts and panels, Dark Tan carpets with Magnolia binding, deep black curtains in the rear for added privacy and Majestic wording inlaid on the rear iPad tables.

Bentley to Invest in New R&D Centre

Bentley has announced that it is to invest GBP 40 million (USD 62.7 million) in expanding its Crewe (United Kingdom) headquarters with a new research and development (R&D) facility. The new centre will measure over 45,000 square metres and feature a dedicated styling studio, R&D offices and a technical workshop. The facility will house 1,300 engineers, and is also expected to see the creation of 300 roles within engineering, manufacturing, quality, sales and marketing and project management. This investment will join the already heavy investment that is taking place at the site. Around GBP 800 million is being invested to prepare for the manufacture of a new sport utility vehicle (SUV) which is expected to add around 1,000 jobs. The investment underlines Bentley's importance within the Volkswagen (VW) Group as part of its luxury vehicle portfolio and the growth that it hopes to see in future. IHS Automotive registration figures show that Bentley's sales have grown to around 9,200 units, although with the addition of the new SUV and the replacement of the Continental GT, registrations will break through the 11,000 unit mark. The R&D investment could also help Bentley look towards further expanding its product portfolio in future as has already been mooted with the prospect of the Grand Convertible or entry-level model.
