Today, Bentley has announced that it will be stopping production of any new cars in its factory in Crewe and is shutting down the factory for one month with plans to reopen again on the 20th April. This news joins a similar announcement from Jaguar Land Rover today, where it plans to temporarily shut down its factories in Castle Bromwich, Halewood and Solihull.

Bentley’s factory produces around 11,000 cars a year and is the company’s only factory.

The closure is due to the ongoing outbreak and issues with coronavirus.
