The Bentley name has been around for around 100 years. During this time, it has been known to produce some of the most luxurious cars, particularly those that run on V8 and W12 powerplants. But in a bid to stay relevant, the British luxury carmaker announced that it will be producing nothing but fully electric vehicles by the year 2030.
It plans to bring this ambitious endeavor to fruition by releasing its first EV by the year 2025. This will be followed by either plug-in hybrid electric vehicles or full EVs of its current lineup by 2026. And by 2030, the range will be an all-EV affair.
By the same token, it plans to cease production of the internal combustion engine within the coming decade. This will supposedly help it reach its goal of being a carbon neutral company by 2030. It likewise hopes to be a plastic neutral automaker by 2025.
With the inherent power and torque that new electric motors seem to be making as of late, we don’t see why Bentley shouldn’t embark on its chosen path. After all, it does seem like the future s indeed electric.
