BERLIN (Reuters) -- Bentley has raised its target for sales as the carmaker plans to add models including its first SUV, a report said.
Bentley is now targeting 20,000 annual deliveries by 2020, double its 2013 sales, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported today, citing the brand's CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer.
The new target would be an expansion of Bentley's original goal of pushing sales to 15,000 models by 2018
Bentley made about 11,000 deliveries in 2013 with revenue and operating profit rising to 1.68 billion euros ($2.1 billion) and 168 million euros respectively. Sales, revenue and profit may all grow further this year, Duerheimer said.
The 95 year-old Volkswagen Group brand is diversifying its model line-up. The company expects annual sales of at least 3,000 for its SUV, its fourth model, and may add a fifth model, Duerheimer said in July.
