Bentley SUV confirmed - due on sale in 2016

Bentley has confirmed that it will proceed with the development of the Bentley SUV.

This future SUV will be company’s fourth model line and will be made in Crewe with sales starting in 2016.

Bentley points out that the new model will create over 1000 jobs in the UK and there will be an investment of more than £800 million in its headquarters at Crewe and the development of new models.

According to Bentley, the SUV will be a thoroughbred Bentley true to the brand hallmarks of luxury, performance, quality and craftsmanship. The styling will set it apart from any other SUV on the road and will be true to the Bentley design DNA. It will be the most luxurious and most powerful SUV in the market.

Bentley did not mention the EXP 9 F SUV Concept with this announcement, only stating “The response from customers to a Bentley SUV has been extremely positive in the last 16 months.”

We’ll see soon how much the production model will be different from the concept.
