At its Annual press conference Bentley released the first picture of its much awaited SUV. Scheduled to hit the roads in 2016, Bentley is calling it as the most luxurious and powerful SUV in the market. In the words of Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive at Bentley Motors “It will create a completely new segment in the SUV market.” The teaser image which looks more like a rendering of the SUV shows the signature Bentley grille and round light clusters borrowed from the Continental and the Mulsanne. Already on the cards is a plug-in hybrid version of the SUV which is scheduled for 2018.
Bentley predicts it will beat other brands like Maserati, Rolls Royce, and Lamborghini in the race for luxury SUV’s. The company is aiming to sell 3,000 SUV’s a year.
