Bentley's global deliveries rose 22 percent in 2012

Bentley Motors today announced global growth of 22 percent in 2012 as deliveries to customers increased to 8,510 cars (7,003 cars in 2011).

The figure maintains Bentley’s position as the leading manufacturer of luxury vehicles in the world. Deliveries were up in every international region as Bentley increased its global sales network by 10%.

“We expect the luxury market in 2013 to continue to be challenging but, with significant new model introductions, we believe we have the potential to maintain growth throughout the year,” said Bentley’s Chairman and Chief Executive Wolfgang Schreiber said.

Bentley’s largest global market was The Americas, with 2,457 delivered to customers in the region, up 22 percent on 2011 (2,021 cars). China followed closely with 2,253 cars delivered, Bentley’s largest ever volume in the region and a 23 percent increase on 2011 (1,839 cars).

Deliveries in Europe rose by 12 percent with 1,333 cars delivered to customers (1,187 in 2011). In Russia, deliveries increased 37 percent, contributing to the strong performance of the region. In the U.K. Bentley delivered 1,104 cars, up 7 percent on the previous year (1,031 cars).

In the Middle East, deliveries increased 44 percent to 815 cars (566 in 2011), while in Asia Pacific Bentley delivered 358 cars (249 in 2011, +44%). Finally Japan saw exceptional growth of 73% with 190 deliveries (110 in 2011).
