Development and design of the first model, arriving in late 2025, is well-progressed, according to Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark. “We know the battery, the performance of the battery. The final design is weeks to a couple of months away. [The car] will be an incremental product to the ones we have today and won’t compete with anything we do. We intend to create not just an EV but to shape a segment too.”

He added that battery technology has progressed rapidly to enable the firm’s goals. “Even a year ago, we didn’t have a clear commitment to a battery technology that would be sufficient to the car that we’ve now confirmed. We can now build a car as big as what we have now. If I then look forward to late twenties, it’s another step change.”

The first model will comfortably have more than 300 miles of range, according to Alain Favey, sales and marketing boss at Bentley. The first two to three electric models will have much in common in terms of battery technology, he explained. These improvements will then be ‘retro-applied’ to the first tranche of cars. “Speed and comfort of charging away from the house is probably the most important thing to our customers”.

Bentley will invest £2.5bn (Rs 25,000 crore approx.) to its Crewe plant and research and development over the next decade with a particular focus on sustainability. The ‘Dream Factory’ is intended to become a digital, zero-environmental impact, flexible and high-value manufacturing facility. It has achieved carbon-neutral production already in 2019, and aims to reduce water consumption, waste to landfill and other environmental impacts for every vehicle built in Crewe to an absolute minimum until 2030.
