Bentley to go fully-electric by 2030

Bentley Beyond100 The Beyond100 plan is intended to ready Bentley for its next 100 years

While Bentley has yet to confirm how many electric cars it has planned beyond the initial model, Rabe confirmed that the firm was "working on a whole family of electric vehicles". It will be followed by two more plug-in hybrid launches in 2021, and the all-electric model will appear a year earlier, in 2025, Bentley said.

The plan at Bentley expands on its previous commitments to offer a hybrid variant on every model line by 2023, as well improve its operations.

British luxury brand Bentley commits to ending use of combustion engines in just 10 years.

The second stage is to phase out also the PHEVs and offer only all-electric models by 2030.

"Following the introduction of the first Bentley fully electric model in 2025 - Bentley's first cradle to grave fully carbon neutral vehicle - Bentley will exclusively offer plug-in hybrid and electric models only within its range in 2026".

At a recent event in the United Kingdom he told CarAdvice "you've got to make a corporate decision on how much overlap you want".

In a press conference today, Chairman and CEO Adrian Hallmark announced the brand's plan to roll out an entire range of electric vehicles. "Don't forget, by the time we get to 2030 the legislation on batteries and the energy efficiency of cars will be no less challenging than it is now with combustion engines". "There will be not a slow progression toward electric cars, but an inflection point in the late '20s when the infrastructure is there".

By 2025 it commits to become "plastic neutral" - removing the same amount of plastic from the environment as it creates.

Luxury automaker Bentley is going all-in on all-electric models.

Despite the effects of the pandemic it says it is actually on course to make a profit this year.

As previously reported, Autocar understands that the firm's first EV in 2025 will be a high-riding saloon that, similar to the Jaguar I-Pace, will sit somewhere between an SUV and a traditional vehicle.
