- 70% of Bentley customers eager for electric rides
- Future models to boast 50-100% more power
- Impressive range and rapid charging times
Bentley is bringing some serious electric power to the luxury vehicle game, and their loyal customers are already revving up for it. With hybrid options for the Bentayga crossover and Flying Spur sedan, the next step is going full electric, but with a twist – these future Bentley beasts will pack even more horsepower.
CEO Adrian Hallmark chatted with Autocar, revealing that a whopping 70% of Bentley customers are eager for an all-electric ride within the next five years. As city dwellers face stricter restrictions on gas-powered cars, the shift to electric is a no-brainer. Yet, Bentley's electric transition won't sacrifice the brand's signature style and performance.
The latest-gen Bentley Continental GT sets the stage for the company's electric future. While maintaining its iconic design, interior, and dynamics, electric Bentleys will boast 50 to 100% more power than current offerings. Speed demons, rejoice!
Range anxiety? Not a problem. Hallmark spills the beans on an impressive 350 to 450-mile range, alongside a lightning-fast charging time of 10% to 80% in under 20 minutes. Now that's what we call electric luxury!
As for Bentley's lineup, a mysterious new model (fifth or fourth, depending on how you count) is on the horizon. While Hallmark didn't divulge specifics, he hinted at another crossover joining the family. So, keep an eye out for a possible Baby Bentayga or, who knows, maybe even a sleek electric wagon.
