Bentley release new SUV!

RMA Track Days talks about the new Bentley SUV

Bentley has confirmed production of its new SUV model. The company’s fourth model – complementing the Continental GT, Flying Spur and Mulsanne – will go on sale in 2016.

The good news for the UK is that, like its siblings, it will be built in Crewe. Over 1000 new jobs have been created by an £800million investment in both Crewe and new model development.

It’s a deal big enough to demand Prime Minister David Cameron’s attendance. ‘One sector that we know is sprinting ahead in the global race is our booming automotive industry’ said Cameron. ‘One vehicle rolls off a production line somewhere in the UK every 20 seconds and we have just launched the government's Automotive Industrial Strategy to help continue this success for years to come. I am delighted that Bentley will be building their new vehicle here.’

Bentley sits among the UK’s other car brands and manufacturers as an example of high export success – four out of every five cars made at Crewe heads to an overseas buyer. This figure is only set to rise with the launch of an SUV, which will appeal predominantly to Eastern markets, China in particular.
