Bugatti CEO Says They’re Ready For Another Vehicle, What Will It Be?

Is Bugatti finally ready for another car? It appears so, although the project must first get the green light from the powers that be at the company’s owner, the Volkswagen Group.

During a short chat with Autocar, CEO Stephan Winkelmann has fueled the rumors surrounding a new vehicle that might sit alongside the Chiron, Chiron Sport and Divo: “The brand is ready for the second car, but it’s not me to decide.”

Since the Sport and Divo are based on the Chiron, a new model would actually be the second product in Bugatti’s current range. It needs to be “a real Bugatti in the segment, or create one”, as well as “a reference for other manufacturers”, Winkelmann said. He also hinted towards some sort of electrified powertrain when asked about it, stating that “this technology will be in our reach” and that “you have to create a car that’s flexible and can be adapted to the latest technology”.

It seems that the automaker has seriously thought about all aspects, but what will this new vehicle be? That’s a tough one, but at least we know it won’t be an SUV, as Winkelmann himself has already ruled this out as it “would not do justice to the brand or its history”. This means that a four-door sedan could be on the table… again. Or it might be yet another supercar. Either way, one thing is certain: “It will be below the Chiron, but on top of every other model”, commented Winkelmann.

While waiting for the Group’s approval, Bugatti is open to making more coach-built models like the La Voiture Noire. They admitted that “there are more and more customers asking for one”, so more bespoke hypercars could be on their way.

As for the Chiron, roughly 150 units have been made so far out of the total 500. The model should remain in production for five more years, and after that, will be replaced by another halo car, which, according to Winkelmann, might use either a conventional, internal combustion engine or an all-electric powertrain.

We reached out to Bugatti hoping to find out more about the second vehicle and the Chiron’s successor, so watch this space for possible updates.

    Most likely another limited version of the Chiron or something built off of it. Hopefully I’m wrong and it’s a new vehicle that’s on a new platform or something.

    They certainly are not going to make a Bugatti SUV. That would be stupid. They will create a new type of vehicle to put other manufacturers to shame and it will be called a Luxury Offroading Limousine, or just LOL…
