Bentley Sales drops dramatically and is the only luxury car with drops in sales in a growing market

20 Jan 2024
  • What are Bentley sales overview between 2022 and 2023?

In a world where luxury automotive brands are celebrating record-breaking sales, Bentley finds itself facing a challenging scenario with a double-digit decline in deliveries for the year 2023. While competitors such as Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Maybach experienced notable sales growth, Bentley moved 11 percent fewer vehicles compared to the previous year, sparking questions about the brand's positioning in the highly competitive luxury car market.

Sales Overview

Sales Overview

Bentley's 2023 sales figures reveal a drop from 15,174 units in 2022 to 13,560 units in 2023, with the Americas remaining the brand's largest market. Despite a nine percent decrease in deliveries to the Americas, the region accounted for 3,848 Bentley vehicles, showcasing the significance of this market for the British luxury automaker.

Bentley's best-selling model for 2023 was once again the Bentayga, representing 44 percent of the brand's total sales. The introduction of the long-wheelbase EWB Mulliner contributed to the lineup's diversity, offering customers additional options for personalization. In fact, personalization saw a remarkable increase of 43 percent over the previous year, underlining the continued appeal of bespoke luxury within Bentley's customer base.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO of Bentley, acknowledged the challenges faced by the luxury market but highlighted the brand's ability to secure its third-highest retail position in history. Despite the dip in sales, Bentley's strong order bank provides optimism for the company's future performance.

In a luxury car market that appeared robust in 2023, Bentley's double-digit decline in sales raises questions about the brand's competitiveness and appeal to discerning customers. While Bentley's personalized offerings and diverse model lineup have contributed to its resilience, the brand may need to reassess its strategy to regain momentum in a market where rivals are thriving. As we await further insights from Bentley regarding these sales results, the luxury automotive landscape remains dynamic, with customer preferences steering towards alternative premium options.
