Bentley mulling moving production abroad
- UK: Wednesday, March 20 - 2013 at 07:48
British carmaker Bentley, which bought by Germany's Volkswagen in 1998, has said it may assemble a planned sport-utility vehicle outside the UK, the first time the luxury brand would build a complete car on foreign soil, Reuters has reported. Bentley, which has been making its ultra-luxury vehicles at the Crewe factory since 1946, said its parent company could give a green light for production in the next few weeks and it may opt to build the SUV overseas. Discussions are centred around two likely locations: Slovakia's capital Bratislava, where the Volkswagen Group makes other SUVs, and Crewe, said Bentley chairman and CEO, Wolfgang Schreiber. "We are all together fighting for the best solution for the group and Bentley," Schreiber said. "There also is the chance that the car may be built in Bratislava and Crewe delivers parts to Bratislava," he added.
