- Bentley Motors has reaffirmed that by 2050, the company will go completely electric.
- Bentley will be launching five EVs staring in 2025.
- The company will be investing around 2.5 billion pounds over the next decade for the “game-changing” strategy.
Most of the industries are moving towards carbon-neutral goals and following the league is Crewe-based automaker Bentley Motors Limited. The company has reaffirmed in a press conference that by 2050, the company will go completely electric.
The luxury automotive manufacturer has made clear that it will schedule final combustion engine manufacturing by 2030, and by 2025 a pure EV will be seen in the market. In the following four years, Bentley is planning to introduce another EV in their portfolio. To get there, Bentley’s lineup will employ plug-in hybrid powertrains.
Adrian Hallmark, CEO of Bentley, said that it would be a “game-changer”.
As a part of its Beyond100 strategy, Bentley will invest 2.5 billion pounds over the period of 10 years. The first step into electrification will begin in the United Kingdom, where Bentley currently manufactures their models.
Not only this, but exotic car manufacturers also informed that it aims to become carbon neutral from all aspects, including supply chain, production, development and exploitation of its products.
The move towards EV makes perfect sense, as the European Commission declared that it aims to end diesel and petrol cars by 2035. Moreover, most the countries are stepping up by either extending subsidies or incentives. For instance, NSW said that a $3000 subsidy would be provided for the electric cars under the $70,000 price range.
