Slovakia has lost in its bid for a new investment by carmaker Volkswagen. The German firm announced on July 23 that it will produce the new luxury Bentley EXF9 SUV – informally branded 'Falcon' – in the British town of Crewe, the Sme daily reported.

Originally, the carmaker considered the option of producing the car in Bratislava, but eventually chose the UK.

“When we put together all factors, the result was Crewe,” said Wolfgang Glabus from Bentley, as quoted by Sme.

Volkswagen will invest €800 million in Crewe, and plans to launch the new car on world markets in 2016.
