China expected to overtake U.S. for Bentley sales by 2012

>> Sunday, January 4, 2009

Coming off record sales of 10,014 vehicles last year, Bentley's performance in 2008 hasn't been going so well, with the current economic crisis starting to take its toll. This is especially the case in the United States, traditionally the strongest market for Bentley. The changing market conditions have forced Bentley to reduce production levels by up to 15%, but the news isn't all bad as growth in emerging markets such as China is still going strong. Though still far below levels in the U.S., Bentley is achieving remarkable sales growth in China, selling just 36 cars when it debuted in the market back in 2002, with the numbers approaching nearly 500 units for this year. Bentley expects the luxury car market in China to grow stably in the coming years.
