The year 2020 has been very tough for the vast majority of car manufacturers. Unsurprisingly, it hasn't hit luxury automakers like Bentley as hard as many others, since they cater to customers that are perhaps more concerned about the coronavirus than about making ends meet at the end of the month.
Bluntly, it reflects the gaps that exist between certain strata of society.
In fact, for Bentley, the last twelve months have been a record period. Specifically, the British-based manufacturer ended 2020 with 11,206 deliveries, beating its previous record of 11,089 set in 2017. The 2020 result also represents an increase of approximately 2 percent over 2019.
The new Flying Spur and Continental V8 played a big part in this increase during their first full year of sales in the market. The upgraded version of the Bentayga also helped drive sales once it launched during the course of the year.
