In 2003, Bentley launched the Continental GT, which is considered the first proper modern Bentley and it is since then that sales of the brand skyrocketed. 1,55,582 of the 2,00,000 cars produced have all been built only since 2003. This growth is a testament to the brand's dedication towards building brilliant cars. Today, Bentley retails the Continental, Flying Spur and Bentayga.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO of Bentley was quoted as saying, "This production of the 200,000th car is just the latest landmark on the extraordinary journey that Bentley has been travelling since its foundation in 1919. The pace of progress has accelerated significantly since 2003 and we are now entering the next period of transformation as we pursue our Beyond100 strategy, with the aim of positioning Bentley as the global leader in sustainable luxury mobility."

Bentley aims to transform into an electric vehicle manufacturer by 2030, with only electric vehicles making up its entire portfolio.

Thoughts About Bentley's 2,00,000 Cars Production Milestone

Bentley makes some of the most desirable luxury cars in the world. For a luxury car manufacturer, the 2,00,000 cars production milestone is a big one as these cars don't sell as well as mass-production vehicles. It doesn't seem like Bentley's growth will slow down anytime soon thanks to its EV plan for the future.
