Bentley to Officially Launch its First EV in 2025

The first all-electric Bentley is about three years away, the first major step towards leaving the ICE by 2030

  • It will be assembled in Crewe.

  • The British luxury carmaker will go all EV by 2030.

  • Bentley will invest £2.5bn into sustainability over ten years.

As part of the extra-large Volkswagen Auto Group, Bentley will also turn its full attention to electrifying its entire product line. Their timeline involves launching their first full-electric model by 2025 on the way to completely abandoning the internal combustion engine by 2030.

The announcement will involve big investments into the plant in Crewe. E&T reports that roughly 4,000 people are employed by the facility and that the plant will undergo considerable changes in the years to come.

Adrian Hallmark, Bentley CEO, said: “It’s an ambitious and credible roadmap to carbon neutrality of our total business system, including the shift to 100 percent BEV [battery-powered electric vehicles] in just eight years. Our aim is to become the benchmark not just for luxury cars or sustainable credentials but the entire scope of our operations. Securing production of our first BEV in Crewe is a milestone moment for Bentley, and the UK, as we plan for a long-term sustainable future in Crewe.”

Peter Bosch, board member for manufacturing at Bentley Motors, ads: “With our new ‘Dream Factory’ concept, we now go to zero also with water, waste and other environmental impacts until 2030.”
