The era of electric vehicles is becoming increasingly rampant, with the emergence of various electric vehicles. Bentley, a British brand, has confirmed that it will also fully enter the realm of electric cars in 2030.
With a strategy called Beyond 100, Bentley will produce 100% electric vehicles by 2030, and will start to stop production of ‘regular’ cars or internal combustion engines in 2026. Meanwhile, the first electric car will be released in 2025.
The Crewe-based manufacturer will begin introducing a new electric car variant before the 2025 premiere. To be sure, there is already a NEW electric car concept released in March, namely the Bentley EXP 100 GT which has a battery range of up to 700 km.
Meanwhile, the first electric Bentley model is actually the Bentayga Hybrid introduced in 2018, which has an additional 50 km of mileage with a 17.3 kWh lithium-ion battery that can be charged with a 120 volt housing socket or a 240 volt industrial socket.
Apart from the production of electric cars, Bentley is also increasingly directing its strategy towards zero-emissions mobility and being environmentally friendly, where all car production facilities are free of carbon emissions, including reducing plastic. In addition, a water recycling system is also being prepared at the paint shop, tree planting and the installation of 10 thousand solar panel ports and 30 thousand solar panels. However, the Beyond 100 strategy also resulted in a reduction of 800 employees.
