Bentley’s First EV Might Be A Crossover-Sedan Mix

Bentley will electrify all new models from 2025 on and the first full BEV will a different vehicle from typical Bentleys


  • The brand’s first EV is expected in 2025.

  • It will be based on a VW-Audi platform under the Project Artemis.

  • Bentley’s future EVs will differ from the current line-up.


Bentley understands, as does Volkswagen, that the world is changing rapidly. In order to remain relevant, all automakers are adapting to a new reality. This is what Bentley will do when they launch their first battery-electric vehicle in 2025.

Bentley has always been about sedans and coupes, and most recently an SUV, but this formula will likely change when they introduce their first EV in 2025. According to Autocar, the EV will take the form of a high-riding sedan. There’s a reason behind this decision.

Bentley chairman Adrian Hallmark said: “We want to appeal to more women and be more relevant in future urban environments which are very much different to today, and we want to appeal to modern luxury values which are different to ones from 20 years ago. We’ve already moved with the times but the times will change again in the next 10 to 15 years.”

According to Hallmark, battery sizes from 110 kWh to 120 kWh will be readily available which will enable between 400- and 500 km. Bentley will take the Audi-developed Artemis architecture and adapt it to its needs in order to match its identity.

This crossover-sedan mix sounds very much like the Audi e-tron Sportback and Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo. This near-SUV-like styling is becoming increasingly popular.
