Bentley Model Production : 2016-17

The Flying Spur

Luxury marques had a challenging 2017. Bentley didn't drop in volume like Rolls Royce did but the yellow in the chart below shows nothing was easy about the year. The downturn in volume was attributed to 'production cycles' by VW. The Bentayga SUV makes up nearly half of the total and the Flying Spur had a positive 33% gain in production volume. It will be interesting to see how the 2018 year pans out.
