The number of cars sold by Bentley Motors in Mainland China (excluding Macau and Hong Kong) is about 396 at the first quarter of this year 2011. It is an unbeatable record at the Asian markets.

The number of cars produced in China by Bentley was lesser than 1000 in 2010 which is the double the figures on comparison to its production 2009. The statistics reveal the China had become the third most valuable market for Bentley. With the figures so far in 2011, a new record has been set by China as they have more units sold than the United Kingdom for the first time in the history of Bentley and thereby China becoming the second most important market after the United States. The statistics prove that one of four cars sold globally by Bentley is bought by the Chinese market.
