Bugatti’s Second Model Slated To Be A High-Riding Four-Seater With Off-Road Capability

Bugatti has been talking about adding a second vehicle to their lineup for years, but it appears the model is finally inching closer to production.

Speaking with Car Magazine, Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann suggested the upcoming vehicle will be a high-riding model as many customers, “especially women, want to sit high so they can see out.” The executive also implied the vehicle would be a four-seater with some off-road capability.

While these clues suggest Bugatti is working on a crossover, Winkelmann downplayed that by saying the model won’t be a traditional SUV. What that means is up for interpretation, but it could be a crossover coupe.

Regardless of what form the model takes, it will undoubtedly be pricey as Winkelmann said “The new car will be the greatest, most expensive car in its sector.” However, he said the vehicle wouldn’t be the “most expensive or extreme Bugatti” as the “Chiron will always be on top.”

While there’s a lot of room underneath the Chiron’s $2.6 (£2.1 / €2.4) million price tag, Winkelmann suggested the new vehicle could begin at around $1 million (£801,000 / €907,000). That’s significantly less than the Chiron, but far more expensive than the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

Additional information is limited, but Winkelmann said he would consider offering the model with a hybridized powertrain. In a separate interview, Winkelmann revealed Bugatti is already looking at ways to finance the vehicle’s development.
