Bentley Motors’ Beyond100 strategy now commits the company to launching a new electric model each year from 2025.
Bentley already announced a £2.5billion sustainable investment allowing the first Bentley electric vehicle to be designed, developed and produced in Crewe, England, which will become a zero environmental impact and high-value manufacturing facility.
The company is aiming to increase the number of solar panels from 30,000 to 40,000 in the next two years and is investigating using sustainable biofuel in fleet cars, including Bentley’s iconic Heritage Collection to support Bentley’s goal of being end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030.
Before then the Flying Spur PHEV is due to be released in 2022 as well as five additional derivatives added to the current Bentayga PHEV lineup.
“Simultaneously accelerating our Beyond100 strategy and securing BEV production at Crewe, alongside a £2.5 billion investment, makes this a major landmark in Bentley’s 102-year history. It is a shining light for the Bentley family, our suppliers and partners, as well as the automotive industry and UK manufacturing as a whole.” Said Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors
“This latest announcement regarding Bentley’s Beyond100 plan confirms the initiation of a major transformative phase in the company’s long and illustrious history. The world is changing and we need to play our part in neutralising our environmental impact. That means delivering on our aim to be end-to-end carbon neutral by 2030, and reaffirming our role as the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”
