Bugatti says no to SUVs
- Bugatti’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed that the iconic hypercar manufacturer will not launch an SUV in the foreseeable future.
- Winkelmann clarified that an SUV would do justice to neither the Bugatti brand nor its history, thereby ending the speculation of the company readying a Lamborghini Urus rival.
- Bugatti generally sells just one hypercar, which right now is the 1,479 bhp Chiron. The company also introduced the limited-edition Divo last year, which was nothing but a track-honed Chiron.
- The brand’s popularity had sparked rumours of an independent second model in its lineup. However, there’s still no confirmation if such a vehicle is under development.
- In a related development, supercar maker Ferrari had previously also mentioned that it won’t launch an SUV, however, the brand’s decision changed after the Urus. Now, the company has confirmed that it’s working on a high-riding ‘Ferrari Activity Vehicle’.
