Bentley Motors has been named Britain’s most admired car company, and the automaker also bagged the coveted top spot in the category for Best Quality of Products. These feats were the results of a peer-reviewed survey conducted by prominent UK business magazine, Management Today.
According to the survey, Bentley ranked 13th in the overall standings, which comprised 250 leading British companies across 25 sectors. The country’s largest public companies and leading employers were asked to evaluate their peers across a dozen key criteria, making it the ultimate peer-review of corporate reputation.
In light of the achievement, Bentley Motors chairman and CEO, Adrian Hallmark said: “Bentley is already the most sought-after luxury car brand in the world, so, we are delighted to receive further, independent recognition of our achievements, especially in the company’s centenary year.” Bentley celebrated its 100th year with a world tour, which culminated in the launch of the EXP 100 GT.
The judges from Management Today said: “To be held in the highest esteem by your peers – and fiercest critics – is one of the highest accolades a business can receive. A century after it was founded, Bentley continues to be a driving force in the industry.”
Moving forward, Bentley plans to offer more electrified vehicles, with plans to make hybrid or full electric versions of all its models by 2023. The pipeline also includes battery-powered electric solutions by 2025.
