A CLEAR ROADMAP
As part of our Beyond100 strategy, we have made a series of bold commitments:
- By 2023, all three Bentley models will be available as luxury hybrid cars. Two of them – the Flying Spur and Bentayga – already are.
- In 2025, we will launch our first fully electric Bentley. It will also be the first luxury car in the world to be carbon neutral over its entire life.
- By 2026, our entire range will be made up of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
- We will complete the transition to a carbon neutral, all-electric range by 2030.
As a result of these commitments, the company will evolve from the world’s largest producer of 12-cylinder internal combustion engines, into a purely electric vehicle manufacturer – and all in just ten years. With the goal of a fully electric Bentley line-up by 2030, there remains some way to go, but progress is accelerating fast. This is a journey on which there can be no turning back.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR
In 2017, the announcement of the electric EXP 12 Speed 6e marked the beginning of our journey. A concept for a luxury electric sports car, it was followed in 2018 by the launch of the Bentayga Hybrid – the world’s first true luxury hybrid.
The EXP 100 GT concept was unveiled a year later, to celebrate Bentley’s centenary. A showcase of the technologies Bentley intends to explore over the coming years, it represents a radical vision for the future, including autonomous electric driving and AI technology. You can learn more about this remarkable vehicle here.
A second generation Bentayga Hybrid was launched in 2021, followed by the Flying Spur Hybrid later that year. Now, customers looking for a Bentley hybrid have even more choice. Together, these stunning new luxury hybrid cars underline our commitment to a sustainable future.
