Kevin Rose, Bentley’s global head of sales and marketing, also revealed that the SUV will be available with four, five or seven seats, but the automaker expects the seven passenger version will account for most of the sales.
With only 4,000 units expected to be produced per year, Bentley expects about a third of all sales will come from the United States.
