Bugatti to end Chiron production next year

It’s hard to believe the Bugatti Chiron has been around for five years, with over 400 cars produced since 2016.

With production limited to just 500 cars, not including any Chiron derivatives such as the Divo or Centodieci, the supercar maker believes it will reach that target by the end of 2021.

However, that doesn’t mean Bugatti will be resting on their laurels, as company CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed they have a few surprises installed for us: “All I can say is this: we’ll be presenting a few interesting surprises in 2020. We have several ideas and are continuing to work on the future of our traditional marque,” he said.

“We will present further high-performance vehicles in 2020, because Bugatti remains true to its philosophy of developing the best cars in the world,” he continued.

Bugatti has been toying with the idea of adding a second product to their portfolio for many years, believed to be a four-door GT or an SUV, though it still needs the Volkswagen Group’s blessing. Electrification will likely be required, though platform sharing is unlikely.

Judging by other marques, Bugatti would likely go down the SUV path even though the move will be a controversial one given its existing clientele.
