That’s a Bentley very electric attack Preparedness is no secret. On the other hand, what the first electric Bentley will look like is still a mystery. CEO Adrian Hallmark offers in conversation with Car News More information about the first electric car from Bentley. Anyway, the intended specs aren’t sickening.
About the appearance of electricity Bentley Hallmark hasn’t laid off yet, not even whether it’s a Bentayga-style SUV or a lower-end Continental GT or Flying Spur. However, it is a completely new model that will be separated from the current range. So it is likely that the new electric vehicle will be similar to the concept car EXP 100 GT shown above. In any case, you will not immediately see from the new model that it is an electric car. “What we won’t do is try to make her look electric carsHallmark said.
Then the intended specification, which the CEO wants to give away a little more. It will be the first electric car from Bentley on the Volkswagen Group PPE platform and will have 1,400 horsepower in the most powerful version. With that powerful electric muscle punch, you should be able to accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 1.5 seconds. However, according to Hallmark, Bentley isn’t interested in fast acceleration. “The main thing is that you can easily overtake with the massive torque,” Hallmark explains. This means that middle sprints in particular will be devastating. Hallmark says comfort is still paramount in the Bentley, so you can reconnect the power delivery via selectable driving modes for a less aggressive response to the power pedal.
So the new electric Bentley will be much more powerful than the brand’s current top model, 659 hp and 900 Nm of the Continental GT Speed. It would also get cheaper to produce, Hallmark says. “A 12-cylinder costs about 10 times as much as an engine in the average premium car, and the average battery costs less than our 12-cylinder. I can’t wait for the batteries, they’re relatively cheap.” The latter is likely to have positive consequences for Bentley’s profit margin, because the top version of the new electric car is said to cost the Mulsanne excluding taxes: a price tag of “more than 250,000 euros” is stated.
