T​hough many companies struggled during the course of the pandemic, Bentley had its best ever year in 2020 and is currently enroute to have an even better year in 2021.

T​he British automaker recently disclosed its half-year performance figures. In the first six months of 2021, Bentley had an operating profit of roughly $211.5 million therefore beating the operating profit of any previous full-year. Bentley’s total revenue was $1.56 billion, up from $991.9 million in 2019.

This is due to a 50% rise in sales when compared to pre-pandemic times. Last year, Bentley delivered 11,206 vehicles and currently, the automaker has delivered 7,199 in 2021 meaning delivery rates may well improve by 30% over 2020.

S​peaking on the success of Bentley in 2021, CEO Adrian Hallmark said: “These results are an important milestone on our mission Beyond100, namely to become the leading sustainable luxury mobility company by 2030. They are the outcome of favorable market conditions, combined with three years of hard work within Bentley, where we have reinvented our products, restructured our operations, managed three crises, and defined our 2030 strategy.”

B​entley’s best-selling model is currently also their most controversial as the company has sold 2,767 Bentaygas. The Continental is in second place with 2,318 and the Flying Spur stands at 2,063.

  • New Bentley looks very nice.

    The only major issue I have with them is that they're owned by Audi and have many, many Audi bits in them.

    As many former Audi owners know, Audis are pure garbage when it comes to reliability, and repair costs.

    If someone gave a new Bentley, I would drive it it right away to the nearest Lexus dealer and trade it in.

  • Just look at that beautiful Champagne Continental in the header photo. It must be one of the most desirable cars in the world. Not their best seller, but what a flagship for the marque.
