Bentley Says All EV By 2030

Bentley going big on EV, carbon neutrality

  • First EV by 2025, all EV five years later

  • Will be entirely electrified by 2026


Bentley has announced that it has some big plans for the future that’ll make their cars even more silent and serene. The automaker says it will be battery-only by 2030 and have full electrification just six years from now They’re also working to increase staff diversity and lower carbon emissions rapidly over the same time periods.

That’s right, by 2030, Bentley says every car it builds will be fully electrics. It admits that’s tough since it’s currently the largest producer of V12 engines in the world, but when your vehicles are already nearing half a million dollars, maybe buyers won’t mind the price premium of battery power. If there even is one compared with a V12.

The first of the EV Bentleys is set to arrive in 2025, and a year after that it expects every single vehicle to either be a PHEV or EV.

To go with its electrification strategy, Bentley says that it will be carbon neutral by 2030, including its entire business. That involves changes at suppliers and retailers, but the automaker is off to a good start with its Crewe facility becoming the first carbon-neutral luxury auto factory in the UK last year. That’s helped by water recycling, tree planting, renewable energy, and more than 30,000 on-site solar panels.

Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bentley Motors, said: “Since 1919, Bentley has defined luxury grand touring. Being at the forefront of progress is part of our DNA – the original Bentley boys were pioneers and leaders. Now, as we look Beyond100, we will continue to lead by reinventing the company and becoming the world’s benchmark luxury car business.

Bentley believes that a result of the changes will include helping to make it “financially resilient and recession-proof.” Bentley said that its latest programme left less than 10 employees at risk of redundancy and the company in the position of a profit in 2020.
