The SUV model Bentayga, which accounted for 42 percent of sales, was in greatest demand. The Bentley Flying Spur, which is also available as a hybrid vehicle, was sold as a hybrid two-thirds of the time in the UK – the proportion was lower in other countries.
The BMW subsidiary Rolls-Royce was able to sell more cars than ever before despite the inflation. According to the manufacturer, it sold 6,201 cars, which corresponds to an increase of eight percent. America, Europe and Asia were the most important markets for both manufacturers. Rolls-Royce posted new highs in sales figures in Great Britain and Germany, among other places. (SDA)
