Bentley hikes Jan-Feb year-on-year global deliveries by 47% to 894 cars

Article by Anita Panait, on March 5, 2012

Bentley Motors posted a 47% increase in year-on-year deliveries for the first two months of 2012, delivering 894 cars to customers worldwide in January and February. The company’s major markets, the United States and China, accounted for 64% of total global deliveries with 251 and 324 units respectively. US deliveries were up 29% year-on-year for the first months of 2012, while China deliveries soared 66% for the same period.

 Deliveries on other major markets were up as well with Europe posting a 39% increase year-on-year. The UK market recovered its figures in 2011, delivering 58 cars for a 16% increase year-on-year. Bentley also delivered 93 cars to customers in the Middle East, where political turmoil in 2011 has greatly affected deliveries, reflecting a 55% increase.

“This is an excellent start to the new year for Bentley,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive. Dürheimer added that the company is maintaining the momentum from last year, which clearly reflects the strong confidence customers have in the Bentley brand and in its new products worldwide. The Bentley attributed its extraordinary growth in the first two months of 2012 to the strong demand for both the new GT and the newly unveiled Continental GTC.

The GT and Continental GTC accounted for 265 and 214 cars deliveries respectively. The company expects to maintain its momentum until the second quarter of 2012, when it will deliver the first Continental V8s to waiting customers.

Bentley also sees a possible record year for its Mulsanne flagship model, which is drawing substantial orders from major markets like China and the Middle East.  Likewise, the China market has been increasingly drawn to the two-door Continental GT, which exudes the style and excitement associated with sports cars.
