The second model Bugatti can become an SUV

The company is considering various types of Bugatti’s body types and one of them may be a crossover

In the Bugatti lineup, a second model may appear, which will be very different from the Chiron and the track-oriented Divo. According to the head of the brand Stefan Winkelmann, the company is now ready for such a step. More likely, it will be a super-super-SUV, not a sedan.

In an interview with Car Advice, Winckelmann said that additional investment is required to build a new model. The most difficult now is to find these funds, as the Volkswagen Group is actively investing in the development of electric vehicles and unmanned technologies.

The management of Bugatti is considering several variants of body types with reference to regional demand, changing preferences and pricing. And although Winckelmann admits that many of the brand’s customers want to see a big sedan in the spirit of the 1917 Royale, the production of an SUV, from a financial point of view, looks more logical

Earlier in the web there was a picture of the sedan Bugatti, which was noticed in the parking of the design center of the brand in Wolfsburg. In the past year, the possibility of the appearance of such a car in the line of the French brand was confirmed by the then president of the company, Wolfgang Durhaymer.
