Bugatti Utility Vehicle Won’t Be An SUV

According to Bugatti Boss, the company’s upcoming tall-riding vehicle will not be a traditional SUV

Bugatti has been contemplating another vehicle for its line-up which has consisted in a single car at a time since the 90s. The company’s been on and off but since VW took over and enabled the development of the Veyron, rendering and concepts of another Bugatti vehicle have circulated. Once more, there’s talk of a tall utility type vehicle but it won’t be an SUV.

In interviews with CAR Magazine, Stephan Winkelmann, now Bugatti Boss, ex-Lamborghini Boss, said that this next new model be capable of some off-roading and will seat four people. It’s unclear if he’s referring to a raised 4-door coupe or possibly something more akin to the Lamborghini Urus he helped launch. Or something like the Urus but quite different at the same time. More decisions must be made.

One is certain however and that’s the price. Winkelmann mentioned a price tag hovering around the $1 million mark which would make it the most expensive hyper-luxury super-non-SUV utility vehicle in the world.

As for power, the Urus’ internals could be a start along with some form of electrification to boost power and efficiency.

Winkelmann did add in the source story that an electric version of the Chiron was not happening. Earlier this year, we reported that an electric Chiron was in fact coming. In November of 2018, Volkswagen Auto Group shared a document outlining their future plans for e-mobility and they included an electric Chiron for 2024. We think this is hint that there won’t be a second generation Chiron. The EV will be called something else.
