July 23, 2013
Bentley have said that the development of a luxury vehicle will create 1,000 new jobs in the United Kingdom. Bentley is investing £800,000,000 at it's Crewe Headquarters to build an SUV, which will compete with cars such as the Range Rover. 

Volkswagen, who own Bentley originally considered producing the car in Bratislava, Slovakia, where it already produces SUVs. The British Government pressed for the project to be kept in the United Kingdom. David Cameron, Prime Minister, was at the announcement at the company headquarters. 

He said that he was delighted that Bentley will be creating their new vehicle in the United Kingdom. They will not only create 1,000 jobs but will also safeguard many more, as well as increasing opportunities of training for highly skilled apprentices. 

Martin Winterkorn, who is the Chairman of Volkswagen said that the Volkswagen Group believe that the United Kingdom is a competitive location for industrial production. 

He went on to say that together they will make the new Bentley another true Bentley model, exclusive, powerful and successful. 

The new Bentley will be going on sale in 2016. 

This will be Bentley's fourth model joining the Continental GT, Mulsanne and Flying Spur.
