Bentley reportedly already considering a second smaller crossover

2014 was a record year for Bentley as they managed to sell over 11,000 units. Its sales target by 2020 is almost double of last year’s sales – the company aims to sell 20,000 units per year by 2020.

One of the cars playing a big role in this growth is company’s upcoming SUV named Bentayga, that has sales projections of 3,000 units per year.

This all-new luxury Bentley SUV will go into production in 2016 with current V8 and V12 engines packing over 600bhp, along with a new plug-in hybrid option that will follow later in 2017. This luxury SUV will be priced above the £130k mark.

To reach the 20,000 units per year Bentley is reportedly planning other models to join the range. We have already talked about a new potential entry-level coupe based on Audi R8, four-door coupe and a Mulsanne-based luxury convertible.

According to Autocar, Bentley is already considering a smaller crossover that would share its platform with the  next-generation Audi Q5 and Porsche Macan. This could work well as it would be cheaper than the £130k Bentayga, while still exclusive, luxurious and powerful.

The production model is obviously years from the production and we don’t expect to see it before 2019.
