Alasdair Stewart is a member of the Board for sales and marketing of Bentley Motors Ltd. We met up with Stewart at the 2011 New York auto show.
Stewart just got into New York from China. How is Bentley doing in China? There are more than fifty cities in China with more than 20,000,000 people in each city. How is China handling that amount of growth? Are they selling to retail customers or hotels?
Most people in China sit in the back of the car, chauffeured. Does Bentley make the four door in China differently than in the United States? What about two doors?
How is Bentley doing in Europe?
How will Bentley meet the new CAFE requirements? Will it be through engines or lighter weight vehicles? Bentley is a member of the Volkswagen AG group.
