Bentley Motors hits Bentayga production milestone
Bentley Motors has built its 20,000th Bentayga, since the luxurious SUV first entered the market in 2016.
The multi award winning Bentayga offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases unparalleled luxury combined with effortless performance and everyday usability.
The first customers received their vehicles at the start of 2016 and in the four years since, 20,000 have been handcrafted by the skilled workforce at the company’s headquarters in Crewe. Each one has spent more than 100 hours on a dedicated production line, where a team of 230 craftspeople meticulously assemble every Bentayga by hand.
Since 2016, the introduction of five derivatives and four different powertrains has provided greater opportunities for customers. Alongside the Bentayga, the range also includes: Bentayga Speed, Bentayga V8, Bentayga V8 Design Series, Bentayga Hybrid and Bentayga Diesel.
The Bentayga Speed is the fastest SUV in the world, with a top speed of 190 mph.
The Bentayga Hybrid represented Bentley’s first step towards full electrification. Offering the best of both worlds, the plug-in hybrid model combines an advanced electric motor with a powerful and efficient new-generation V6 petrol engine and a top speed of 158 mph.
