Bentley to become fully electric by 2030

Bentley Motors, famous for its luxury cars, plans on releasing plug-in hybrid cards by 2026 and completely electric models by 2030.

Owned by the German company Volkswagen, Bentley has decided to introduce 2 plug-in hybrid models next year. The fully electric models were said to be expected in 2025. Right now, the only plug-in hybrid offered by Bentley is Bentayga SUV.

Bentley’s chief engineer, Mathias Rabe, said that the future of the company involves fully electric vehicles.

This announcement is more surprising seeing as Bentley is famous for its traditional engines and its luxury cars. Coming to electric cars will mean revolutionizing and changing the very identity of the company. Further, still, similar companies have also decided to shift from traditional engines to wholly electric systems.

Bentley CEO stated that within 10 years, the name of Bentley will not stand to represent a company that provides traditional luxury cars, rather, it will provide sustainable and revolutionized cars that will be the epitome of luxury.

Adrian Hallmark, CEO of Bentley, also mentioned that the disruptions caused by the pandemic has put the company in a delicate position. Hallmark expressed that the company needed to achieve 10,000 sales in 2020 at least if not equal to the 11,006 sales achieved in 2019.

Bentley further announced that it would have to cut up to 1,000 jobs, or nearly a quarter of its current workforce in light of the disruptions caused by the pandemic. Bentley announced that it would be implementing a ‘voluntary release’ program when cutting up on the workforce.
