Bentley has become the latest luxury carmaker to announce record sales – despite the cost of living crisis.
The Crewe-based company, which dates back to 1919, said it delivered 15,174 cars last year – 4% more than in 2021.
It explained that the increase was driven by record demand in the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, as well as its popular new models and personalised cars.
“In what was another year of unpredictability, the business overcame significant headwinds and demonstrated great resilience to deliver the third consecutive record sales year,” said chief executive Adrian Hallmark.
“The reaction to the market introduction of our hybrid models, Flying Spur joining Bentayga last year, demonstrates the path the luxury sector is heading, and we are positioned firmly at the forefront.”
The news comes after Rolls-Royce revealed it had also delivered an all-time high of 6,021 cars last year.
