As the Bentley SUV saga continues, the vehicle is getting closer and closer to entering the real world and it seems that Bentley has already registered 2,000 pre-orders for the vehicle, even though its production design hasn’t been shown yet.
COmpany CEO Wolfgang Schreiber recently made the information public and what makes things even more interesting is the fact that the price of the luxury SUV still remains unknown.

However, in order for the EXP 9F Concept you see in the adjacent image to become a production model, Bentley needs to appoint a factory. The carmaker’s home site, Crewe, is currently fighting with VW Group’s Bratislava plant in Slovakia - the winner will get to bring the Bentley SUV to the world.

Bratislava is being considered thanks to its industrial capacity, as it already produces the VW Group SUVs which the Bentley model will share its platform with: Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg.

On the other hand, Bentley’s Crewe plant has outstanding manufacturing capabilities, which is why, even if Bratislava gets the car, it will probably handle the interior of the Bentley SUV.
