At a recent meeting, Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark introduced one of their EVs with a power of 1,400 hp (1,044 kilowatts) which is planned to arrive in 2025.
“If we now had a GT Speed of 650 hp, we would double that power with a new EV. But there is still a lot to be developed, especially in driving comfort,” said Hallmark.
Bentley bosses describe that currently driving the car is still very nauseous because of the incredible speed. Therefore Hallmark suggested that its engineers change the acceleration rate to be slightly slower.
This savage-powered Bentley EV is reportedly built using the PPE platform, or the same platform as the Audi Q6 E-Tron and Porsche Macan EV. In terms of styling, Hallmark also can’t describe what this car will look like in the future, but he guarantees that this car will look luxurious and futuristic.
In an earlier interview, Hallmark gave a more specific response to how their future EV might look, confirming that the design will not be far from being a high-riding sedan.
To date, Bentley has invested £2.5 billion over the next 10 years to build an EV at its Crewe facility in the UK. Not only that, they even have a goal to achieve zero carbon for all their production activities by the end of this decade.
With this investment and schedule, Bentley is optimistic that by 2030 they will only produce EVs, which means that they are currently working on several EV nameplates so that their goals can be achieved on time.
