Bentley: a British luxury car brand - Statistics & Facts
The British luxury car manufacturer Bentley was founded in 1910 and has been a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group since 1998. The company made 1.55 billion euros in revenues in the 2018 fiscal year. In the past three years, net revenues declined by roughly 20 percent. When compared to other car brands that are part of the VW Group, this translated to the lowest amount of revenues generated. As for operating profits, the company made 55 million euros in financial year 2017, which was more than twice as less than in 2016.
In 2018, Bentley manufactured 9,115 vehicles. This was a decrease compared to the previous year, despite the company nearly tripling their production since 2009. Europe was by far the company’s most important market, with nearly every second delivery intended for customers on that continent.
Bentley’s leading model by production as of 2018 was the Bentayga, with more than four thousand vehicles manufactured. However, when looking at data over the past five years, there were more Continental GT Coupé models produced than any other. Regarding sales volume, more than 1.5 thousand units were sold on Bentley’s home market, with a further 130 units having been sold within the UK in January 2019.
Despite increases in production, registration figures for the Flying Spur were still relatively low. By the third quarter of 2018, there were 738 licensed vehicles in Great Britain, an increase of just 37 units since 2017. On the other hand, though only introduced in late 2015, Bentley’s first SUV model, Bentayga, saw significant growth rates in registration figures, amounting to 1.52 thousand units at the end of September 2018.
