Bentley SUV In The Works (2012 Detroit Auto Show)

Bentley’s chaiman and CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer had some interesting details to share with reporters earlier this week at the 2012 North American International Auto show in Detroit:

“In China, we were the first time ever in a situation that we could sell more than a thousand cars… We ended it up last year at 1,839 vehicles in China. It is a growth of 95 percent inĀ  comparison with last year,” adding that it could overtake the US market by this year alone.

Bentley SUV to be added to Bentley range eventually

In addition to talking about its high hopes for the Asian market, the Bentley CEO and chairman added that we would be seeing an exclusive Bentley SUV very soon:

“Especially for our market growth in China, we think it is a great opportunity to have a very upscale and exclusive SUV”.

No word yet when we could see a Bentley SUV on the market however it appears to be a shoe in for the Asian market. We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
