Bentley sales are up, despite recent economic uncertainty

Article by Christian A., on September 15, 2011

The new Continental GTC convertible made its global debut at the International Automobile Exhibition (IAA) in Frankfurt as sales of Bentley recover all around the world. Despite the latest economic shake-up, sales gained year-on-year in major markets. This demonstrated the incredible interest of the market in the new model range of Bentley.

With the latest GTC convertible, which will be available for sale in the last quarter, Bentley anticipates delivering an overall sales increase of about 40 per cent for this year.

For the year to August, the company’s sales gained by 31 percent with 4016 units delivered to customers all over the world. For the first time in its history, the company was able to sell over a thousand units in the Chinese region -- a stunning rise of 67 per cent year-to-date --with the milestone achieved before August ended.

Moreover, the company’s largest single market is still the United States. With sales of 1195 units to the end of August all over the Americas region, the brand is up by 36 percent compared to the sales figure last year.

Meanwhile, Europe is showing increased confidence, too. Specifically, sales in the European region are up 35 percent overall and led by a resurgent Germany where the company’s sales are up by two-thirds. Leading this increase is the strong demand for the Continental GT coupe.

Just under half of all sales of Bentley are GTs, which reached all markets for the first time last month. Mulsanne too has a strong order bank and, with the arrival of the new Continental GTC convertible, a solid foundation is available for future growth expectations.
