Bentley raising its sales target at 20,000 annual deliveries by 2020

As you may know already, rich people are attracted by luxury cars and Bentey knows this fact very well. That’s why, the British car manufacturer owned by the Volkswagen Group is raising its sales target at 20,000 annual deliveries by 2020. Apparently, the introduction of new models including its first SUV makes brand’s CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer confident that Bentley will be able to double its 2013 sales.

For those who don’t know, Bentley’s original goal was 15,000 models by 2018 after selling 11,000 vehicles in 2013, while its operating profit increased to 168 million euros. Same Duerheimer said that sales, revenue and profit may all grow further this year.

As we said, Bentley is expecting to boost its profit with its first SUV, which will go into production in 2016, while the plug-in hybrid version will arrive in 2017. According to several sources, the plug-in hybrid version of the Bentley SUV will offer a smaller V6 engine as well as an electric motor.

If the range in full electric mode will be just 30 km, the vehicle will be fast enough as the hybrid system will be able to push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 5 seconds. In the concept form, the Bentley SUV used a 6.0-liter W12 engine that produced around 600 hp and 400 Nm of torque.

The 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine will also be offered, delivering over 500 hp. [source: automotive news - sub. required]
