BENTLEY GOING ELECTRIC WITH NEXT CAR

News coming out of Europe is that Bentley is hard at work conceptualising its next big project. Remember, a future car based on the EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept was chosen to add to the Bentley range instead of a smaller SUV. At the time it was speculated that it would use an electrified powertrain, but there was no clarity on whether that would be full-electric or plugin-hybrid. Well, this may very well be that clarity.

 

Bentley will use Porsche’s Mission E underpinnings for its car, which will make it a full-electric model. But while timing has not been confirmed yet, it will not appear before the Mission E, which is slated for next year. Similarly there is still a question of doors pending; will it carry four or two? Certainly it will have four seats.
