Bentley ramps up production of facelifted BentaygaJuly 26, 2020
The British brand has announced a massive increase in production for its luxury crossover Bentley Bentayga. The production facilities of the company’s plant in the British city of Crewe will now work at 100% – earlier, the enterprise was functioning only at 50%.
The green light for the old production of the revamped British crossover came after the automaker implemented a series of new health and safety measures at its Crewe plant. The new measures allow the company to use the plant’s production capacity at 100 percent, whereas before, the company had to limit this figure to 50 percent due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Some areas of the factory had to be redesigned to accommodate the new measures.
Certain areas of the plant will operate a controlled safe work environment with enforced social distancing of more than one meter in accordance with the latest government guidelines. While other parts of the plant will maintain a strict social distance of two meters. Face masks will be mandatory for all factory employees. The crossover production line employs over 100 people who work in 43 different assembly stages.
“The new Bentayga crossover is our flagship vehicle and is a testament to the skill and dedication of all our colleagues. The entire manufacturing process is unmatched in any other automotive plant in the world, ”said Peter Bosch, Board Member for Manufacturing at Bentley.
