Bentley to decide on new ultra-luxury SUV production soon

Article by Anita Panait, on January 21, 2013

Bentley Motors will soon decide whether to produce an ultra-luxury sports utility vehicle, chief executive Wolfgang Schreiber disclosed. The ultra-luxury SUV would be underpinned by same platform that underpins Audi, Volkswagen and Porsche vehicles. Bentley is expected to unveil the ultra-luxury SUV within three years.

According to Schreiber, the styling of the ultra-luxury SUV will look more like the rest of the Bentley brand than the controversial design of the Bentley EXP 9F Concept that was previewed at the 2012 Geneva auto show. During the Detroit auto show, Schreiber said that the main intention was not to show the final styling but to get feedback from the market. He remarked that people who saw the styling would say, “that is a real Bentley.”

Schreiber said that the ultra-luxury SUV will likely be powered by an eight-cylinder engine or an optional W-12. The carmaker’s CEO said that although Bentleys are luxury cars, people like its effortless acceleration and torque-y engines. Bentley also will share a platform with Audi or Porsche for the next generation of its Continental GT coupe, GTC convertible and Flying Spur sedan that are set to arrive in five years, according to Schreiber.
